The Diaspora Film Festival of Black and Independent Films will hold a Community Screening at the Hayti Heritage Center to screen the full-length documentary, Kemtiyu: Cheikh Anta. The film is about Historian and scientist Cheikh Anta Diop, who argued that ancient Egyptians were Black through linguistics and carbon dating. He was also a fervent Pan-Africanist who called for the United States of Africa. With original music score by pianist Randy Weston, this beautifully presented portrait is a fitting tribute to a man who dedicated his life to the restoration of Africa’s historical significance and dignity.
