Village of the Ancestors

In recent weeks several dedicated warriors of our vast diaspora community have started their journeys to the Village of the Ancestors: Gil Scott Heron, Abdias do Nascimento, and Albertina Sisulu.

The video clip below is from a recent interview with the late Gil Scott Heron (4/1/1949 – 5/27/2011).


This video clip (in Portuguese) of the Brazilian activist-scholar Abdias do Nascimento is from a 1983 ceremony to honor and memorialize the great revolutionary leader Zumbi, in the Serra da Barriga, the location of the renowned quilombo known as Palmares.


This interview with the late Walter and Albertina Sisulu, major leaders in the struggle against apartheid in South Africa, took place in Detroit in 1996.
