Maafa: Truth 2007


With the British government promoting an inaccurate revisionist version of the 1807 Abolition of the Slave Trade Act many are determined to ensure that Truth prevails in 2007.

With contributions from community activists, project workers, teachers, historians and the business community, this documentary confronts the myths about British slavery, presents the true history of the Maafa and African resistance and examines the politics of the government's bicentenary celebrations.
