Dead, they were no longer dangerous. “We took out all the radicality of their legacy,” says Raoul Peck, director of “I Am Not Your Negro.”

AFRICANGLOBE - In academic and political lectures, when I refer to the negative psychological and economic impact slavery has had on Black people, my questioners usually retort: "You have to bring up slavery again?" The same people who object to my bringing up slavery's impact upon Black people have no objections when Jews urge their people: "Never forget!" This raises the question: Why should Black people forget about slavery when Haiti, well into the 20th century, paid reparations to France for having fought for and won their freedom?
