"Tango Negro, The African Roots of Tango by Angolan filmmaker Dom Pedro explores the expression of Tango’s Africanness and the contribution of African cultures in the creation of the tango. Tango was a reflection of the social life of the slaves that were taken to South America — including Argentina and Uruguay — mostly from central Africa, particularly from the former Kongo Kingdom.

Director Dom Pedro reveals the depth of the footprints of the African music on the tango, through this rich movie combining musical performances and interviews from many tango fans and historians in Latin America and Europe, including the renowned Argentinean pianist Juan Carlos Caceres.”

Directed by Dom Pedro, 2013, 93 min., France, Documentary , French/Spanish/ English subt. - US Distributors - ArtMattan Films www.AfricanFilm.com

…………..We should be celebrating corporations, according to the Human Right’s Campaign, who sent out a press release praising America’s companies for their LGBT-specific advertising, claiming that this proves that these companies are on the forefront of the fight for equality. This is the same HRC that has distanced itself from leftist queer movements. In 2012, the organization was protested by Occupy Wall Street’s Queer/LGBTIQA2Z caucus, a group that opposed the Human Rights Campaign’s decision to honor Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein at their annual gala in New York. Blankfein has spoken out in favor of gay marriage, but the queer Occupy group condemned the HRC’s alignment with a banking giant that was so intimately involved in the factors leading to the Great Recession and the erosion of the American middle class. To paraphrase queer occupier Jeffrey Marx, the HRC’s vision of equality increasingly seems to be that everyone who can afford a country club membership is equal…………….
