Music made in the West, but not of the West. Diasporic Music shines the musical spotlight on the film, "The United States of Africa Beyond Hip Hop". This second feature film by Yanick Letourneau follows African hip hop pioneer Didier Awadi as he crafts a new album that shines a light on black revolutionary leaders-from Kwame Nkrumah to Thomas Sankara, from Malcolm X to Cheikh Antah Diop-who fought for the dignity of the African people, and for an independent united Africa. On a sprawling musical journey that takes him to some 40 countries, Awadi meets hip hop artists Smockey (Burkina Faso), M-1 from Dead Prez (United States) and Zuluboy from South Africa. Dr. Gerald Horne, author of "Negro Comrades of the Crown: African Americans and the British Empire Fight the U.S. Before Emancipation" returns to discuss his research for a new volume he is writing on Africans in Cuba.
