Motherland (2010) Owen Alik Shahadah
Tuesday, October 18th, 7 pm
at BloomBars 3222 11th Street, NW Washington DC (Columbia Heights Metro)
"The most powerful documentary on Africa... Fusing history, culture, politics, and contemporary issues, Motherland sweeps across Africa to tell a new story of a dynamic continent."
From the glory and majesty of Africa’s past through its complex and present history. Motherland looks unflinchingly toward a positive Pan-African future. With breathtaking cinematography and a fluid soundtrack, Motherland is a beautiful illustration of global African diversity and unity.
After the screening, we will be led in our discussion by Mwiza Munthali – the Public Outreach Director of TransAfrica – the oldest and largest African American human rights and social justice advocacy organization promoting diversity and equity in the foreign policy arena and justice for the African World.
A $10 donation is suggested but not required and free popcorn and refreshments will be provided. All proceeds will benefit both TransAfrica and BloomBars. Your support of TransAfrica will help amplify the voices of millions of people in Africa and throughout the Diaspora. Gifts to BloomBars help support their programming and work in the community.
