Description: Crime, drugs, HIV/AIDS, poor education, inferiority complex, low expectation, poverty, corruption, poor health and underdevelopment plagues people of African decent globally. Why? Five hundred years since the onset of slavery and subsequent colonialism, Africans are still struggling for basic freedom. Filmed in five continents, and more than 20 countries, '500 Years Later' engages the authentic retrospective voice, told from the African vantage-point, of those whom history has sought to silence. It examines the collective atrocities that uprooted Africans from their culture and homeland. The film is a timeless compelling journey, infused with the spirit and music of liberation that chronicles the struggle of a people who have fought and continue to fight for the most essential human right -- freedom.
