This week on Lessons From the Screen we will be looking at the Independence Day Project, a documentary film that seeks to change the way Black People look at our struggle for equality. It does this by shifting the narrative away from all the problems we face at the hands of White Supremacy and plants the narrative directly on the Black Community and things we can do now to change our situation. The film looks at 10 areas of human activity and gives us a little something to swallow and ponder on all of them. As usual we will look at this film, likes, dislikes, and its potential impact In this episode of Lessons from the Screen.
