Synopsis

The Black Candle uses Kwanzaa as a vehicle to explore and celebrate the African-American experience.

Narrated by the poet Maya Angelou and directed by author and filmmaker M. K. Asante, The Black Candle is about the struggle and triumph of African-American family, community, and culture.

The documentary traces the holiday’s growth out of the Black Power Movement in the 1960s to its present-day reality.

The movie won the Africa World Documentary Film Festival 2009 award for best full-length documentary.
