Historian and scientist Cheikh Anta Diop argued that ancient Egyptians were Black through linguistics and carbon dating. He was also a fervent Pan Africanist who called for the United States of Africa. With original music score by pianist Randy Weston, this beautifully presented portrait is a fitting tribute to a man who dedicated his life to the restoration of Africa’s historical significance and dignity.
