    Black History March is an ongoing project series, now in it's third year, this project seeks not only to commemorate and remember various time periods in African history and it's diaspora through words, motion picture and still photography but to celebrate it. The body of work through all three volumes serves as an ode to black history. Each volume of work speaks to a different time period, a different place, different people but all African. - See more at: www.anthonybila.tumblr.com & Black History March Volume i here: http://on.be.net/1nz3GUn & volume ii here: http://on.be.net/1ualCoC I purposefully launched this project a month after the Black History Month actually occurred, it’s traditionally held in February but I wanted to dispel the notion that black history needs a ‘special month’, the shortest month of all no less, dedicated to it as commemoration and remembrance of the rich incredibly vast history of Africa and it’s peoples. My thoughts about black history are that it should be venerated just as any other significant part of history is, at every given opportunity. The name of the series is a double entendre. March being the month we are in and march in the sense that we soldier on, as a people moving forward but never forgetting to reflect and look back at where we have come from. Something I believe we should all do.

            "I went back to Rwanda last month for the first time in almost 20 years. I was head of mission for Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) during and after the 1994 Rwandan genocide. The experience changed me completely; my innocence died there." Hear from Rachel Kiddel-Monroe as she reflects on her time with MSF in the Democratic Republic of Congo during the Rwandan Genocide.

                    “Of course the image is always given that the Africans themselves acquiesce to the process of slavery. But you’ll find that in West Africa there was a polity or a political entity that existed that guaranteed security right across West Africa and that was the Songhay Empire. We saw the emergence of Nasir Al Din in the 16th Century. We saw Malik Sy in the 16th Century as well, and men like Abdul Qadeer and Cherno Sulayman Kaba, these men who waged resistance in what is known as Futa Toro and Futa Jalon. -- Muhammad Shareef

                    • Out of Africa: Quest for the Northern Lights VOD


                      from BoilerRoom Studios / Added

                      Written Produced & Directed By Richard Arabome Copyright 2013. BoilerRoom Studios PTY Ltd www.broomstudios.com Out of Africa: Quest for the Northern Lights can be summed up in 3 words; Africa's checkered history. I embarked on this project with two things in mind, travel around the magical island of Iceland and finding at least one Northern Lights shower; we accomplished that. I also wanted to explore the contrasting fortunes of the early pioneers and settlers on this very young island and modern day Africans, we hope we also accomplished that with this film. In order to adequately tell Africa's side of the story, we had to go back some 500 years detailing the turning points that we believe sealed the fate as it were, of today's African. Out of Africa: Quest for the Northern Lights, is the first feature film to chronicle 500 years of African history under a single film, taking us through some of Africa's more heart wrenching and unforgettable episodes in the continent's checkered history from the 15th to 21st Century. At the end of the day, we hope to have shown the viewer, a side of Africa they would never have known. This is the overriding aim of the film.
