Up to date info,not generic, on Africa's past and present
6 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Was a great up to date film on Afraka! The visuals was great! Love the insertion of the Amharic language.The best side of the film is the economic chapter, to help people understand what is going with Afraka financially. This should be watched by High School and College kids to help there understand of the continent of Afraka. Afrakans from all over the world, will enjoy this film. A great quote from the film was, that of Malcolm X, on Afrakans hating themselves. And also Black vs African. Black is a made up term that stems from European thought. There is no race that is all one color or even black. Hopefully this film will strike a chord in a lot of minds.
