Shashamane

Shashamane

Shashamane chronicles a chapter of the lengthy history of the African diaspora, through the voices of men and women who have left the West, 400 years since the dawn of slavery, to return to their forefathers’ land and reclaim their African identity. It’s an exodus that becomes an extraordinary homecoming to a place that for some is a haven, but for others a cage with no escape.
