Hidden Colors

From author, radio and director Tariq Nasheed, comes the documentary, Hidden Colors 2: The Triumph Of Melanin, a sequel to last year's Hidden Colors: The Untold History Of People Of Aboriginal, Moor, and African Descent.

The film will feature interviews with leading scholars and historians across the USA, each discussing topics that have been "omitted from modern history books," focusing on the following areas and more:

*The origins of the Olmec and Mayans

*The truth about the prison industrial complex

*The economic warfare against aboriginal people

*Untold American history

*Secret medical practices against people of color

And much more.

The documentary will also touch on many of the reasons why much of this information has been hidden from the public for so long, say the producers.

This film will be of interest to everyone, regardless of race or ethnic background, because the rich history of the people discussed is world history. And world history is all of our history.

Hidden Colors 2: The Triumph Of Melanin will be in theaters this Fall. It recently completed a successful $30,000 fundraising campaign to see it through completion.

The first film in the series, Hidden Colors, was released in April 2011, in select theaters across North America. It was Tariq Nasheed's directorial debut, and is availavle on DVD currently.

Below is the trailer for Hidden Colors 2: The Triumph Of Melanin:
