Hidden Colors 4: The Religion Of White Supremacy is the latest follow up film to the critically acclaimed hit documentary series Hidden Colors. In this installment of the Hidden Colors series, the film explores topics such as: The motivation behind European global subjugation The history of rarely discussed vast West African empires How germ warfare is used on melanated people The history of slave breeding farms in America And much more.
While Hollywood spins its wheels with remakes of historical slave narratives, Hidden Colors 4 builds on the contemporary understanding of the current situation of Black America. The fourth film in the series premiered last Thursday, May 26- with sold out shows in every city. The Hidden Colors documentary series started in 2011 with telling the hidden history of achievement within the African Diaspora, as a counter-position to the focus on just slavery and servitude that we are often force fed.
Directed by best-selling author and radio show host Tariq Nasheed, Hidden Colors 4: The Religion of White Supremacy highlights Black history as well as contemporary matters. Among the featured scholars, thinkers, and historians are Prof. James Small, Dr. Llaila O. Africa, Robin Walker, Patricia Newton, Killer Mike, and Anthony Browder. Dr. Kaba Kamene was also in the film, and at the New York premiere to address the crowd briefly before the showing. Having seen all of the films, I would say the major differences between the third documentary and this one is that there is more of an analysis of global white supremacy. The documentary does a good job of delving into history, while incorporating some of the occurrences of 2015, and this year as well. It may not be heartening to think about some of these matters, but you can’t say it isn’t relevant.
