Hidden Colors Series

This 4 part documentary series was directed by Tariq Nasheed and featured many black conscious speakers and scholars such as Dr Frances Cress Welsing, Umar Johnson, KRS-One, David Banner, Dick Gregory, Joy DeGruy, Nas and many others.

The series is largely on the untold history of how the black people contributed largely to civilisations. There are many black inventors, teachers and scholars that are unheard of today who have shaped the world in a great way.

Part 1

This part talks about the untold history of people of the Aboriginal, Moor and African Descent. This part was released in 2011. This part goes back as far as the time of the Egyptian empires and the early development of Europe and Asia. Certain facts are mentioned, for example, a black man named Bodhidharma invented martial arts was a man of African descent. There is an ancient tradition that states that you cannot become a Samurai unless you have a certain amount of melanin.

The Moors helped to develop Europe after the Roman Empire fell and the word MOOR means black. They helped start Universities and brought about knowledge of medicine and fashion. The documentary also talks about Hannibal Barca being of black heritage and Van Gogh being highly influenced by African art.

 

Part 2

This part was released in 2012 and was called the Triumph of Melanin this part focuses on the treatment of Black economic communities in America such as the Black Wall Street. Black inventors that helped shape America such as Benjamin Banneker were mentioned. Further information on the segregation and segregation is occurring today in public schools in America where black students are being labelled retarded wrongly.

Black roots of eastern religions are shown as well as the evidence of black people in early Christianity that was hidden by the Vatican.

The documentary portrays black people in America before slavery and even Columbus. A lot of blacks lived and mixed with the Native Americans.

Part 3

This part focuses on black people geniuses and was released in 2014. A lot of African American inventors were mentioned as well as the fact that some white inventors took credit for black inventions. The effects of slavery on black people today were also looked at closely. African leaders who stood up to protest slavery were also mentioned as well as African monuments and architecture (Oba’s palace in Benin).

Part 4

This is the last part of this series so far it was released in 2016. It focuses largely on white supremacy and its effects. It also breaks down the way we as human beings are being subconsciously programmed through religion, the media and school systems to view Africa and black people as inferior. This is obviously very subtle an example of this is the fact that Africa is made to appear much smaller on maps. Slavery in the Caribbean and Central America was also looked at.
