5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, sublime, sensational May 11, 2011
In 12 years of public school education and 4 years of undergraduate education, I have never felt as educated and enlightened as I have after just under 2 hours of watching this film. I had the great fortune of seeing the movie in the theater and had to view the DVD 3+ more times to process all the historical knowledge presented in this film. Beware, this film will lead you to seek more in depth information, so be prepared to spend extra time in your local library or doing your own research on the internet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have! May 16, 2011
By Aaron
Great documentary. Black history is hidden, so we have to start digging, and this documentary is a great place to start. Watching this documentary, you will discover interesting facts. Facts such as how Black people from North Africa civilized Europe. Facts about how Black people established the first dynasties in Asia. The truth about I.Q and much more.

You might be already aware of many of these facts, but in this DVD it is consolidated and beautifully put together with images. One thing to remember is that this dvd doesn't even touch on the pinnacle of Black history. You can't fit Black history into a two hour dvd, so there will be more parts to come as the executive producer has said.

The scholars in this movie were great. Not only were they informative but also charismatic which made them exciting to listen too. One of them you need to look out for is Umar Johnson. This man seems to have the potential and the ambition to be the next great true Black leader.

This is a must have for every Black person. And anyone for that matter that wants to learn true history. Can't wait for pt.2!

5.0 out of 5 stars All people of color need to see this film! May 11, 2011
By 3one4
Many people of color, African Americans in particular, have been indoctrinated with a European centered education. This film exposes the theft of our true history as the original people of Earth. One thing I wish they would have talked about was irrefutable proof of that Africans circumnavigated the earth well before Europeans. How else could the Great Pyramid of Giza be located exactly in the center of the land masses of Earth?

The film is great for all ages. My wife and kids enjoyed it thoroughly. We can't wait for part 2!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Refreshing View on a Neglected Subject December 2, 2011
Most documentaries about black people and their history are often distorted by half-truths and outright exclusions. After watching Hidden Colors you can understand why they have been doing this ever since the beginning of modern civilization. Watching this documentary makes other documentaries about this subject matter seem depressing and agitating. My only complaint about Hidden Colors is that I wish it was at least two hours long. But I understand that the show must end at sometime, no matter how entertaining and thought-provoking it is. As people have said about this film, it is one of the best documentaries ever created, if not the best ever made about this subject matter period. It's hard to really give it a fair comparison because other documentaries are afraid to go at least half-way into the subject as Hidden Colors had boldly gone. This movie will change lives and create a certain mindset that will encourage and inspire. You will learn more in these 110 minutes then you probably ever had in years of schooling and history lessons. I am looking forward to Hidden Colors 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Film is Nourishment for the Soul August 2, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just finished my first viewing of "Hidden Colors." I say the first because to truly digest this film you will want to have multiple viewings. Blessings to Tariq Nasheed for gathering the scholars and presenting this information. The teachers in this film are well-versed in African history, sociology, politics, etc. and they present the information with a sense of furious determination and spirit not seen in very many documentaries. This film will jump start you on your quest for knowledge of self and serves as an excellent (visual) bibliography for future study and expansion. If you think this film is fascinating, wait until you branch further into the details of this history. It's MIND BLOWING!

For the first time ever, the true motivation of white supremacy is explained in full. The contributions of the Moors to early American society is also explored in great detail. While long-forgotten rumors such as Abraham Lincoln's racial heritage are finally brought back to light. I could go on but I don't want to ruin the many surprises contained in the movie.

I hope that Mr. Nasheed will continue to bring us future volumes and that Hidden Colors will become a series for those seeking to learn more about the origins of the human family and of civilization by way of African history.

When sharing this film you may encounter the typical "Uncle Tom" response from many of your black brothers and sisters. Indeed your own parents and grandparents may know nothing of the historical facts presented in "Hidden Colors." Do not be discouraged by this and continue to study. This type of explosive material might cause some to show their ignorance.

Fantastic movie for sure and I look forward to watching it again and again so that I may digest it all!

The souls of Black people have been starving for this!

Thank you,
