AFRICAN INDEPENDENCE (USA, 2012; 120 min.) Directed by Tufuki Zuberi . Seattle premiere.
Monday, April 15 at 4:00 p.m.

African Independence is hosted and produced by Tukufu Zuberi, known and respected by public television audiences across the US for his ten seasons of work on PBS's successful show History Detectives. Dr. Tukufu Zuberi is the Lasry Family Professor of Race Relations, and Professor of Sociology at the University of Pennsylvania.

Blending a personal quest with a scholar's vision and understanding, Tukufu places people and events of modern Africa within their full historical and social context, telling the story of the African independence movement through the freedom fighters and leaders who helped achieve liberation, justice, and independence for Africa.

In 2009, President Obama told the Ghanaian people, during a speech in Accra, "I do not see the countries and peoples of Africa as a world apart; I see Africa as a fundamental part of our interconnected world." African Independence highlights the President's words by revealing the interconnection between African and world history. When Africa is relegated to the sidelines of world history, we all suffer the consequences of such ignorance. Beginning with World War Two, through the end of colonialism, the Cold War, and the era of African republics, African Independence gives unique insight into Africa's past, present, and future. Told through the voices of those who lived this fight for independence, and supported by rare archival footage, the epic story unfolds.
