HIDDEN HISTORY: Tariq Nasheed presents 1804: The Hidden History of Haiti

THE LITTLE-KNOWN history of the Haitian revolution was the subject of a new documentary that premiered in Birmingham recently.

1804: The Hidden History of Haiti - penned by Tariq Nasheed, a New York Times best-selling author, was shown at Millennium Point as a part of the Second City’s Black History Month celebrations ahead of its worldwide release this month.

The movie was named to mark the year the first time an enslaved people gained victory over their captors.

Previously Nasheed produced a critically acclaimed documentary film series, Hidden Colors, on the history of African and aboriginal peoples.

Nasheed, who was born in Detroit, Michigan, and now residing in Los Angeles, California said his reason for making the series was because “the mainstream media was going out of their way to hide African accomplishments”.
