Haile Gerima


Haile Gerima is the director of the film Sankofa, which is also the theme for Black History Month 2007 and will be speaking on Wednesday.

The literal meaning/translation of Sankofa is “it is not taboo to go back and fetch what you forgot”…We must go back and reclaim our past so we can move forward; so we can understand why and how we came to be who we are today.

Date: Wednesday, February 28th
Time: 7pm-8pm
Location: Shanklin 107
