Nasheed was in Nashville in September, 2013 to promote his earlier fascinating and highly thought-provoking documentary films Hidden Colors and Hidden Colors II. Nasheed produced the documentary film Hidden Colors on the history of African and aboriginal peoples in 2011. That film had a limited theatrical release around the United States before being made available on DVD. Nasheed’s follow-up film and DVD, Hidden Colors 2: The Triumph of Melanin, was released in 2012. All three DVDs are readily available at Alkebu-Lan Images bookstore in North Nashville, at 2721 Jefferson Street. Call 615-321-4111 for store hours.
Hidden Colors is a documentary series about the real and untold history of people of color around the globe. The films discuss some of the reasons the contributions of African and aboriginal people have been left out of the pages of history. Traveling around the country and the world, the films feature scholars, historians, and social commentators who have uncovered truly amazing facts, including the following: the original image of Christ; the true story about the Moors; the original people of Asia; the great west African empires; the presence of Africans in America before Columbus; the real reason slavery was ended; and much more.
Hidden Colors III: The Rules of Racism takes a specific focus on unveiling and decoding structural racism/global White supremacy, and then seeking answers as to how to dismantle it.
“I tried to research as many of the facts as I could.” said Douglas Lewis. “I researched almost everything I saw and could not find any problems with what was discussed. I challenge you to do the same. It’s shocking, but a very accurate documentary. The problem with a movie like this is that it is so foreign to Americans of all cultures. It’s foreign because in the U.S. we are only taught mostly about European/American history, which doesn’t include much on any other races. We are not taught history in American schools in depth. American history is inherently limited in nature. If you actually take the time to research the information covered here, it is scarily accurate.”
Nasheed, nicknamed ‘Tariq Elite,’ ‘King Flex’ and ‘K-Flex,’ is an author, documentary film producer, media personality, satirist, Internet radio host, relationship expert, and social commentator, frequently focusing on the psychology of dating and African American social history.
