This film was an excellent work of art. I does not only provide factual information but allows the expression of the individual's opinion .
This is a film is a motivational for those who continue to struggle with some of the unfortunate events of life. It provides hope for our future generations.
500 Years Later captures the history, nobility, and victorious consciousness of African peoples all over the world. It is stunning in its breadth, magnificent in its depth, and brilliant in execution. This is sure to become a classic film
I look forward to the continutaion of this film
