"A Great And Mighty Walk: The life of John Henrik Clarke"
January 2005

Shows Monday, February 7th, 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. at the Hippodrome Cinema, in conjunction with the Civic Media Center's documentary film series.

This film chronicles the life and times of the noted African- American historian, scholar and Pan-African activist, John Henrik Clarke (1915-1998). Both a biography of Clarke himself and an overview of 5,000 years of African history, the film offers a provocative look at the past through the eyes of a leading proponent of an Afrocentric view of history. From ancient Egypt and Africa's other great empires, Clarke moves through Mediterranean borrowings, the Atlantic slave trade, European colonization, the development of the Pan-African movement, and present-day African-American history.
