International Pan African Film Festival, Cannes, France
- A very important message for all children. GREAT film. Love what you are doing.
- Come to Trinidad! Love your work! Ase’.
- Very good. The distorted way of teaching history needs to be addressed. Very powerful. My only critic is I would show more the diversity of African cultures.
- Good Job! Black American and Black people have really to know our common past. It’s very important. Thank you very much for this laudable approach.
- You resemble Maya Angelou, writer: the fight to be Black and to learn our history, to be free of slavery.
- Thank you so much for such an amazing remembrance. You are reminding African people that they should and must go through what they are taught at school – you are inspiring and incredible. May God bless you. Xoxo
- Thank you for this movie. Africans need their history to be told.
- A beautiful film! Go on with this work – thank you – thank you- thank you.
- The movie was short, but excellent. Your movie teaches that it’s important for teachers and parents, educators to invest in the history and the education of our children.
- Thank you. It was fantastic. So many people don’t know who they are and they don’t know that it is important. Thank you.
- Thank you. It was very interesting. It’s so important to know your history. Thanks to you, we know who you/we are.
- I really liked the documentary, I like the course, the choice of words to convey the message. I would, however, like to say that African Americans should be educated to know both their American and African heritage.
- Magnifique! Merci!
