500 Years is a 2005 documentary directed by Owen Alik Shahandah and written by M.K.ASANTE, Jr

Crime, drugs, HIV/AIDS, poor education, inferiority complex, low expectation, poverty, corruption, poor health, and underdevelopment plagues people of African descent globally.  500 years later from the onset of slavery and subsequent colonialism, Africans are still struggling for basic freedom.  Filmed in five continents, and over twenty countries, 500 Years Later engages the retrospective voice, told from the African vantage-point.
