SLAVERY- 500 Years Later The film is a compelling compilation of testimonies, voices and opinions gathered around five continents The centrepiece of the event is the screening of a newly released DVD on the African slavery trade, the shameful human trade officially abolished in 1772 in the UK and its empire. Winner already of the best documentary prize at the Pan-African film festival and Bridgetown film festival and with testimonies ranging among others, from Dr M. Karenga, Amira Baraka, Desmond Tutu, Dr Helena Woodward, Shaykh Muhammad Shareef and Trevor Marshall. The film, is a compelling compilation of testimonies, voices and opinions gathered around five continents and more than 20 countries on the subject. 'We went to universities as well as into the neighbourhoods to talk to the common folk, says Asante Jr, the talented scriptwriter and poet, who was a first year media graduate at the time when he started working on the project. --cenuk
