Black to our roots

"Black To Our Roots is the inspirational story of the journey that Sylvia takes from Atlanta, Georgia to Ghana,West Africa to explore her cultural heritage and escape the hopelessness of her neighborhood. During her travels, Sylvia is con¬fronted with several challenges that test her patience and change her life forever: she must adapt to living conditions that America has ill prepared her for, learn to appreci¬ate things she took for granted, and address the misconceptions that exist about both Africans and African Americans. Sylvia must also confront a very painful chapter in human history when she visits the Slave Dungeons and grapples with the divisions that confront Africans throughout the Diaspora. In this process, Sylvia faces her fears and emerges as a confident, outspoken, and articulate young woman ready to claim her destiny. However, when she returns to the US, will she be ready to adjust to her old world as a new woman? This film is a testament to the power of self-love."
