The documentary 500 Years Later will be screened in English followed by a discussion as part of the Eyes Wide Open Film Series presented by U.S. Citizens for Peace & Justice - Rome.

Film Synopsis:
Crime, drugs, HIV/AIDS, poor education, inferiority complex, low expectation, poverty, corruption, poor health, and underdevelopment all plague people of African descent globally. Why? 500 years from the onset of slavery and subsequent colonialism, Africans are still struggling for basic freedoms. Why?

Filmed in five continents, 500 Years Later examines the collective atrocities that uprooted Africans from their culture and homeland. 500 Years Later is a timeless and compelling journey, infused with the spirit and music of liberation that chronicles the struggle of a people who have fought and continue to fight for the most essential human right – freedom.

"Until lions tells their tale, the story of the hunt will always glorify the hunter" -- African proverb
