Cartoon Summary:


This is an exhilarating immersion into the heart of Black culture via a whirlwind voyage through the defining moments of Black History. As an old lady initiates her grandson into his past, a series of perpetually transforming images painted directly under the animation camera unfolds before our eyes. In a mesmerizing swirl of light and color, the boy traces his ancestry to mighty Pharaohs, and to valiant kings whose praises are sung by a griot beneath the baobab tree. Suddenly, the beating of drums conjures forth the slave market and far-flung exile. At long last, rocked by the rhythms of gospel and jazz, the boy makes his way from the lush Caribbean to the snows of the Americas.

In early Canada, the boy encounters slaves and fugitives. He shares in the Black peoples' struggles for freedom and sees all they have contributed to our common heritage. Finally, his grandmother bequeaths him Martin Luther King's dream: a dream that one day all human beings will live together in liberty, equality and brotherhood.
