And can people still stop referring to the Amazigh as “Berbers” which means “barbarian”. Otherwise great points.

"Many Documentary Films Have Been Shot in Africa, But Few Have Been Seen by African Audiences." New Initiative Aims to Change That »

in association with channel ED and the 35th Durban International Film Festival, a world first will be taking place this month when a full week of African documentary films are broadcast across sub-Saharan Africa on DStv channel ED (channel 190) and GOtv (channel 65), from the Durban International Film Festival, the largest film festival in South Africa that takes place from July 17 to 27.

This unique film event will see a diverse and exciting range of films screened across 49 countries of sub-Saharan Africa. 

The AfriDocs Film Week will connect the largest film festival in Africa through a “film festival on your screen,” featuring documentary films from thirteen countries in Africa – The D.R.C., Kenya, Liberia, Mali, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda.

"So many documentary films have been shot in Africa, but very few have been seen by African audiences," says AfriDocs Executive Producer Don Edkins from Steps in Cape Town. "This heralds a new era of distribution for the continent."

@owningmytruth I see #POWER in connection and community, because it is ultimately through love and empathy that we learn to truly connect and care about one another across difference. In community we find collective power to fight against all that is unjust and inhumane. #wearequeerafrica #queer #africa #lgbt #african #stories #justice #love #empathy #community #nigeria #activism #mikaelowunna #owningmytruth

The Amazing Connections Between the Inca and Egyptian Cultures 

"The ancient Egyptians (in Africa) and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas (in South America) evolved on opposite sides of the globe and were never in contact.

Yet, both cultures mysteriously possessed the same strikingly identical body of ancient art, architecture, symbolism, mythology and religion.

The Victorian era scholars, faced with this enigma, concluded that both cultures must have been children of the same Golden Age parent civilization, “Atlantis.”

Today, Egyptian/Inca parallels are not only being ignored by American and Western scholars, they’re being suppressed.

Many baffling and unsolved similarities link the ancient Egyptians and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas ― even though both cultures evolved on opposite sides of the planet, separated by oceans” Read More

In Photos: “Becoming South Sudan” by Alinka Echeverria (2011).

It’s been a little over three years since the four million voters from Africa’s youngest country voted in a referendum to secede from Sudan and create the Republic of South Sudan. January 9th, 2011, was the day that changed everything, the day history was made and the day the world’s 193rd nation was birthed. Exactly six months later on July 9th, 2011, South Sudan officially became a sovereign and independent nation.

However, less than five years later the country has found itself in an ongoing conflict as fighting between government forces and rebel armies (chiefly the Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Movement - SPLM) continue to take place over resources and territory. Today, April 15th, marks exactly four months since the beginning of South Sudan’s current civil war. The war has so far displaced more than a million and killed over 10,000. UNICEF warns that the South Sudan conflict and famine could kill 50,000 children within months.
