HIDDEN COLORS Documentary on the Cover-Up of African History Makes Int’l Premieres This Week

Thursday and this weekend marks the premiere of the new hard-hitting documentary Hidden Colors, which aims to examine the real and untold history of people of color around the globe.  The new doc is directed and executive produced by first-time director but New York Times best-selling author and social commentator Tariq Nasheed, best known for his provocative and controversial yet insightful relationship advice books to mostly to men but also to women – such as The Mack Within, Play or Be Played, and the most recent The Elite Way – as well as the long-running and popular podcast The Mack Lessons Radio Show.

Though Nasheed’s relationship and ‘mack’ advice is universal, he always delves into history and the contributions of people from the African diaspora and how the knowledge of such will help any Black man or woman more aware of themselves, and thus a better contributor to the world.  After watching a lot of bad movies with zero content over the past few years, Nasheed decided to take matters into his own hands and not only put together this film but distribute it in the USA and Canada this week.

This film will discuss some of the reasons why the contributions of African and aboriginal people have been left out of the pages of history. The filmmakers traveled around the country talking to scholars, historians, and social commentators who uncovered such amazing facts about things such as: 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, and the real reason slavery was ended, as well as much more.

As you can see in the trailer below, notable experts such as Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, Dr. Booker T. Coleman, Shahrazad Ali, and Dr. Phil Valentine, among others speak on these disparages.
