  • slideshow_large

Ronnie Cush, Owen Alik Shahadah

Synopsis

Crime, drugs, HIV/AIDS, poor education, inferiority complex, low expectation, poverty, corruption, poor health, and underdevelopment all plague people of African descent globally. Why? Five hundred years from the onset of slavery and subsequent colonialism, Africans are still struggling for basic freedoms. Why?

Filmed in five continents, 500 Years Later examines the collective atrocities that uprooted Africans from their culture and homeland. 500 Years Later is a timeless and 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.
