                  Long before the first African stepped foot on North American soil and long after the last slave ships plied the Atlantic Ocean, East Africa harbored its own dark trade. For centuries until the 1920s, Arab traders traveled into Africa’s heart to collect slaves for use both on African plantations and throughout the Middle East. Along the way, these slaves endured atrocities as cruel as many that happened in West Africa. Death marches to the coast for thousands of miles. Pain, hunger, exhaustion. Families split apart. The clash of culture, language and religion. Before being shipped around the world, many slaves were funneled through one small town in modern-day Tanzania: the quiet yet diverse Bagamoyo. How did a community born of brutality become a place of tolerance and forgiveness? In this eye-opening and compelling film, Jake Salyers sheds light on a forgotten piece of history. Through the prism of Bagamoyo, Salyers examines the East African slave trade and its reverberations into the present day. From the ancient ruins of Arab colonies to the testimonies of villagers who can still remember the slave trade, BAGAMOYO, LAY YOUR HEART DOWN reveals a classic story of past loss and present redemption.

                    "Diaspora" n'est plus un DVD qu'on se passe sous le manteau, c'est la révélation de réalités d'êtres humains conscients de leurs origines qui va enfin éclater au grand jour ! A travers les interviews les langues se délient , au fil des intervenants le nègre bannit l'autocensure qui le caractérise. Dans ce reportage qui pose question, on avance le panafricanisme, la solidarité interculturelle africaine, on évoque le pouvoir que nous aurions si nous étions tous conscients que de l'Afrique au caraïbes en passant par l'Europe et l'Amérique nous sommes un seul peuple et nous devons construire notre avenir sans attendre que d'autres le fassent à notre place et à leur manière. www.mia-culture.com

                      Marika Sherwood on the Panel... Towards a world without colonialism, imperialism and racism. Patrice Lumumba, one of the greatest anti-colonial thinkers and leaders of the 20th century, was murdered on 17 January 1961, just ten weeks after being elected as the first Prime Minister of the Republic of Congo. Both Belgium and the US were involved in plotting his death. Fifty years later, much of Africa and the third world still suffers under neocolonialism, but the tide is starting to turn. We are organising this meeting in order to reflect on the changes of the last 50 years and to discuss possibilities for the future of struggle against colonialism, imperialism and racism. "We must move forward, striking out tirelessly against imperialism. From all over the world we have to learn lessons which events afford. Lumumba's murder should be a lesson for all of us." (Che Guevara).
