Event description

Description

As the public and political climate prepares for change, many of us are looking for ways to join our efforts to create opportunity, enterprise, and build resources for our families and within our communities. HAPI is a groundbreaking documentary film that explores the historical premise behind that very concept. This event will include Pre-screening of the HAPI film to date followed by a moderated panel discussion with educators, historians and local politicians. The event will be moderated by Philippe SHOCK Mathews and the panel will include the great historians, Dr. Leonard Jeffries, Dr. Wade Nobles and Prof. James Small.

"HAPI” The earliest known name for the principle the Ancient Egyptians described as the Nile, is a new groundbreaking documentary film by filmmaker Taaqiy Grant that explores the historical premise behind the role of the Nile River. The film further depicts the rivers importance in the development of the economic and political foundation of civilization. Through in-depth analysis and commentary by some of today’s foremost scholars, HAPI investigates the failure of a ‘consumption driven’ Black economy through the lens of cause and effect. From systemic poverty, disenfranchisement, and the decline of entrepreneurship, to group economics, social networking and independent startup, HAPI addresses the many complex problems as well as innovative solutions for successful competition in the global economy.

The HAPI film also presents a snapshot of economic history spanning from the dawn of civilization to today. The underlying theme of the film is the interrelationship between the three essential components of economics, politics and culture. Economics plays a fundamental role in life. Any system or government has to have as its foundation economics, which is complimented by politics and then politics and economics are meaningfully put together by culture. Economics is a major factor in the development of any culture, any civilization, any nation, any empire and any institution. This film strives to promote economic empowerment through economic literacy.
