Event Details

ANOTHER FILM FOR THE BLACK COMMUNITY… Let’s come together and learn about one of our great ancestor scholars. Food and beverages will be provided. All kids are welcome.

Historian John Henrik Clarke, who spends much of his on-camera time with his eyes closed, invites viewers to take their own inward-looking journey — to an ancient Africa forgotten by history. Through a montage of archival footage, artwork and Clarke’s own narration, he argues that the West did not bring civilization. On the contrary, Europe destroyed what civilized societies it found. The film also traces African influence to modern times and shows how the ancient ideas have endured.
