=================================================


The Black Athena Debate: Live Onstage featuring Dr. John Henrik Clarke

Saturday, February 10, 2007 3-5 pm

Renowned historian Dr. John Henrik Clarke teams up with Professor Martin Bernal, author of the book "Black Athena: The Afroasiatic Roots of Classical Civilization", in a live debate with "Black Athena" critics Mary Lefkowitz and Guy Maclean Rodgers. The topic of the debate is the Afrikan influence on ancient Greek civilization.

=================================================


Quilombo

Saturday February 17th, 2007; 3 to 5 PM

See the acclaimed film that tells the story of 2 of Brazil's great African leaders. Ganga Zumba and Zumbi. The Africans who built the colonies known as "Quilombos" where Africans lived in their own culture, religion, and government away from slavery and Portuguese savagery.


====================================================


500 Years Later

Saturday, February 24th 3-5 pm.

Crime, drugs, HIV/AIDS, poor education, inferiority complex, low expectation, poverty, corruption, poor health, and underdevelopment plagues people of African decent globally - Why? 500 years later from the onset of Slavery and subsequent Colonialism, Africans are still struggling for basic freedom-Why? Filmed in five continents, and over twenty countries, 500 Years Later engages the authentic retrospective voice, told from the African vantage-point of those whom history has sought to silence by examining the collective atrocities that uprooted Africans from their culture and homeland. 500 Years Later is a timeless compelling journey, infused with the spirit and music of liberation that chronicles the struggle of a people who have fought and continue to fight for the most essential human right - freedom.

Namaste' Sami_RaMaati.

I ALMOST wish i was in the States! i have been searching for some of these films, especially the Black Athena debate, for months! i read some literature Lefkowitz wrote called 'Not Out of Africa' in there she disputes the notion that Greek philosophy was stolen from Kemet; i heard through the grapevine that she got served! on this film..so I've been searching for it.


BTW if you have any info, on the Ausar Auset Society in London let me know.

Come on down!

Tomorrow--Feb 10--we'll be showing "The Black Athena Debate" featuring John Henrik Clarke and Martin Bernal.

In addition, we're considering a repeat of last week's film "First People, Our People: Ancient Egypt Revealed" because Dr. Asa Hilliard's presentation was outstanding and compelling.
