Black History Studies presents the FREE #FinancialLiteracyMonth screening of

 

'GENERATION ONE: THE SEARCH FOR BLACK WEALTH'

Thursday 6th April 2017

 

 

 

 

 

Generation One is a Call to Action to Build Black Wealth.

 

Generation One: The Search for Black Wealth (2015) brings together top financial minds in the African American community to map out a blueprint for wealth creation among Black people. With the 2007 recession, the housing crisis and soaring unemployment rates leaving Black America's wallet trapped in the crosshairs of the United States' financial crisis, the lack of generational wealth in the African American community has never been in sharper focus.

 

Generation One takes a hard look at the numbers, giving historical context to early wealth creation in the Black community and tapping the expertise of the nation's top financial experts to weigh in not only on how Black people fell behind, but surefire strategies families can implement to begin building a strong financial legacy for generations to come.

 

After the screening, there will be a discussion and Q&A.

 

An event for all the family!

Black History Studies in collaboration with the Independent Cinema Office (ICO) presents 'Black Britain on Film,' a brand new series of archive film programmes featuring extraordinary treasures from archives across the UK, available to the British public for the first time.


The latest release from this touring programme explores the vital history of Black Britain throughout the 20th century. Bringing together films spanning 1901 to 1985 and taken from many different regions of the UK, it offers incredibly rare, little-seen and valuable depictions of black British life on screen.Watch miners in the collieries of Edwardian Lancashire and Yorkshire; and soldiers from across the Empire joining the services to fight for King and 'mother country' in World War I.

Revealing new voices from across a century of vast and turbulent social change in the UK, Britain on Film: Black Britain is not just an important educative tool - offering audiences the chance to explore stories of migration, community and the struggle against inequality - but also an opportunity to celebrate vivid Black British life and culture on screen.

Black History Studies presents UK PREMIERE of


GENTRIFIED: ETHNIC CLEANSING AMERICAN STYLE

 

Saturday 18th February 2017

 

 



Following on from the highly acclaimed documentary '7AM: A Documentary,' Black History Studies presents the UK Premiere of Black Channel Films latest documentary 'Gentrified: Ethnic Cleansing American Style' on Saturday 18th February 2017.


Is it "redevelopment" . . . or ethnic cleansing?


"Gentrified" is the first documentary ever to take an in-depth look at the effects of gentrification and provide statistical and social evidence that it targets the Black community in particular. When big business and big govt conspire to create so-called "redevelopment" it always leaves a richer, all white neighborhood in it's wake. The old, Black residents are left to their own devices which include poverty and homelessness.


In "Gentrified", we travel across the United States and interview activists, entrepreneurs and academics to give a brutally honest look at the way the entire country, and even the world, is being reshaped by the process of gentrification. In the 21st century the haves are removing the have-nots and it's time we saw who they were.


They're rich. They're white . . . and they're coming for everything you've got.


The screening will be followed by a panel discussion.


This event will take place on SATURDAY 18TH FEBRUARY 2017 from 7.30pm.

The event will take place at Hackney Attic, Hackney Picturehouse, 270 Mare Street, London, E8 1HE.

Black History Studies presents the International Women's Month screening of


Queen Nanny: Legendary Maroon Chieftainess

 

Sunday 5th March 2017

 

 

 

The Slave Trade Act 1807 or the Abolition of the Slave Trade Act 1807, was an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom passed on 25 March 1807. March 2017 is the 210th anniversary of this event. London played a central role in Britain's involvement in the transatlantic trade in enslaved Africans. Because London was Britain's major port, ships owned by London merchants dominated the trade during the 17th and early 18th centuries.


Conceived by Jamaican-born, New Jersey-based filmmaker, Roy T. Anderson, and history professor, Harcourt T. Fuller, PhD, Queen Nanny: Legendary Maroon Chieftainess, a one-hour documentary-film, unearths and examine the mysterious figure that is Nanny of the Maroons; Jamaica's sole female National Hero, and one of the most celebrated, but least recognized heroines in the resistance history of the New World.


Queen Nanny: Legendary Maroon Chieftainess documents the struggle for freedom by the Jamaican Maroons, led by the indomitable 18th century military genius, Nanny of the Maroons. A spiritual leader, skilled in the use of herbs and guerrilla warfare tactics, from her mountain stronghold at the source of the Stony River in the majestic Blue Mountains, she directed the warfare that effectively neutralized the vaunted British firepower.


Following on the heels of Akwantu: the Journey (Action 4 Reel Flimworks, 2012), Anderson's award-winning film on the history of the Jamaican Maroons, Queen Nanny expands on the story of the New World's first successful freedom fighters by shedding light on to one of the leading figures in that struggle.

BALLOTS AND BULLETS IN MISSISSIPPI


Saturday 29th October 2016

 


 

Ballots & Bullets In Mississippi- narrated by actor and activist Danny Glover (The Color Purple, Lethal Weapon) - is an inspiring and provocative account of how Black landowning families in Mississippi - who controlled almost 2 million acres of land in the 1960's and who believed in armed self-defense - became the secret weapon of the 'non-violent civil rights movement' for voting rights and racial equality in America's most violently racist state.

 

When civil rights organizing was met with escalating terror, Black landowners and independent farmers played a vital role providing safe havens for hundreds of activists from outside the state. They also organized and provided armed protection for communities being targeted by the Ku Klux Klan for their voter registration activities and were typically the first to dare to try and register to vote and the first to run for public office.
