Please join us for the screening of the film, Kemityu: Cheikh Anta from 5:30 – 8:00pm, Tuesday, March 28, 2017 in the Bank of America Auditorium, Massey Leadership Center.
The film traces the life of Cheikh Anta Diop, the scholar and activist who changed the course of global Black consciousness. From his roots in Djourbel, Senegal to his student activism in Dakar and Paris, Diop challenged the eurocentric academy and the post-colonial political order. Kemityu provides a rare look at this remarkable historian. The film has received honors at FESPACO (Ouagadougou), Guadeloupe Libreville, Gabon and Los Angeles’ Pan-African Film Festival.
