"Amandla!" Film Showing, Introduced by Producer Sherry Dean

This Emmy and Sundance Award winning film is about how the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa was propelled and buoyed by song.


The stories told within by icons like Hugh Masekela and Miriam Makeba, among many others, are horrifying but the path toward freedom and the power int eh songs that were (and still are) sung by the people marching forward toward a free South Africa are beyond moving.
