Untold story of people of color


Hidden Colors 2 is a critically acclaimed sequel by producer and New York Times best-selling author Tariq Nasheed. The documentary is about the real and untold history of people of African and Aboriginal descent. It is packed with information and knowledge that has been erased from history books and is never spoken of in schools, especially Historically Black Colleges and Universities. 

The film opens with an introduction of melanin: what it is, how it works and why many great accomplishments have been carried out by melanted people. Melanin is what makes Black people darker than individuals who do not have melanin.

Nasheed notes that melanin is why many Black people are highly intelligent, artistic and soulful. He also points out that the Egyptians were Black people, but Egypt was not the only place in the world where Black people reigned supreme. 

Contrary to popular belief, African people were present on the continents of North America, Asia, Europe, and Central and South America long before slavery was ever incepted. 

Furthermore, the content of Hidden Colors 2 is broken into four sections of warfare: cultural, political, spiritual and economical. It breaks down how Black people have been stripped from their indigenous culture and look down upon anything African because of miseducation, propaganda and downright lies. 

Hidden Colors 2 will show on April 10 at 5:30 p.m. in the Favrot Student Union movie theater. For more information, call 504-704-8777.
