    Hmmm It's funny how quickly this type of film gets financed. Yet here we are in 2015, and we still can't work together to finance our own films. Films which uplift and elevate us. Films about Hanibal the great. The Dogon, or other great men and women who have and still, make us so proud of our accomplishments. It's a sorry show when this is what we have for our children to look upto. Black people – We should hang our heads in shame, for we have let down every ancestor that has gone before us. Peace.
