A panel presentation on the acclaimed film “Hidden Colors 2” is scheduled for this Saturday, February 9, at the African American Women’s Center, 3020 West Vliet Street beginning at 1 p.m. Doors will open at 12:30.
“Hidden II” vividly explores such topics rarely discussed openly such as the origins of the ancient Olmecs and Mayans, the cultural, spiritual and medical warfare against peoples of color, how thriving Black economic communities were undermined in America, the truth about the prison industrial complex, and the untold American history.
Released in December, 2012, “Hidden II” features such presenters as author Dr. Claud Anderson, ancient Kemetic (Egyptian) scholar Tony Browder, Dr. Booker T. Coleman, Dr. Umar A. Johnson, KRS-One, “The New Jim Crow” author Michelle Alexander, “Hidden II” director Tariq Nasheed, professor James Small, researcher and early global Black presence scholar Runoko Rashidi, and Dr. Phil Valentine. “Hidden 2” follows last year’s “Hidden Colors I – The Untold History of People of Aboriginal, Moor, and African Descent”.
Panelist this Saturday include Oshi Adelabu, President of the Milwaukee Chapter of NBUF (National Black United Front), UW-M Africology Professor, Dr. William Rogers, UW-M doctorial student, Modupe Liston, MPS teacher Diamond Suggs, and Springfield College Adjunct Professor Taki S. Raton.
