The Healing Passage (2004, 90 min), by S. Pearl Sharp – Reflects on African heritage and explores the need for healing within the African Diaspora. Prominent cultural artists explore the present-day effects of the trans-Atlantic slave trade and use music, ritual, dolls, spoken word and visual art to create paths to healing.

Madea Allen will join us again, presenting a healthy food demonstration and tasting, while facilitating a discussion of the film. She will prepare a dish reflecting African heritage and speak about healing through eating wholesome ancestral foods.
