The African Diaspora Film Festival was founded in 1992 by Diarah N’Daw-Spech and her husband Reinaldo Barroso-Spech. It is based in New York City and brings their films from Europe, Latin America, Asia and, of course, Africa. All films screened in over 15 years wanted to show how Africans, people of African descent and black people all over the world live and face reality. Themes are related to history (colonialism, independence, contemporary issues), politics (current affairs, migration, refugees, war) social problems (poverty, access to water, discrimination) and culture (music, dance, traditions, food).
Transition Magazine at Hutchins Center for African and African American Research
Since its founding in Uganda in 1961, the magazine has kept apace of the rapid transformation of the African Diaspora and has remained a leading forum of intellectual debate. Now, in an age that demands ceaseless improvisation, we aim to be both an anchor of deep reflection on black life and a map charting new routes through the globalized world. Transition is a publication of the Hutchins Center at Harvard University, published three times annually by Indiana University Press.
