A highlight of the night is the Cleveland premiere screening of “Kunta Kinteh Island: Coming Home Without Shackles,” a documentary that portrays the pure essence of hope.This film chronicles the renaming of James Island to Kunta Kinteh Island, but more importantly it highlights the pride of a people that were so strong they were known as some of the greatest hunters and warriors on the continent.
This movie focuses on the lessons taught by Kunta Kinteh’s grandmother, Yaisa, which rang as truths in his spirit, freeing his mind even when he lost his physical freedom. Because of the lessons he learned, today’s African American may return to the Mother Land with heads held high, knowing that they can survive any obstacle and flourish in any environment as long as they stay true to their inner convictions.
