The Alan Lutkus International Film Series presents:

The Neo African Americans (US/Ghana, Kobina Aidoo, 64”)
Thursday, November 11, 7:00 p.m. Newton Hall 204 Discussant: Maria Lima,
English.

Through interviews with social scientists, activists, and African,
Caribbean and Afro-Latino immigrants now living in cities across the
United States, THE NEO-AFRICAN-AMERICANS is a documentary that analyzes
the major issues arising from black migration--self-identification, income
inequalities, black-on-black tensions, education, affirmative action,
among many others--in one compelling hour of video. The filmmaker, Kobina
Aidoo, describes THE NEO-AFRICAN-AMERICANS as a living documentary. Since
the first time the film was shared with the public (June 08), it has been
presented as part of lecture series in more than fifty universities across
the country, incorporating audience feedback in the current version.

ALL SCREENINGS ARE FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
