Roy T. Anderson returns to Paradigms to talk about his most recent documentary film project African Redemption: The Life and Legacy of Marcus Garvey. Roy was on the show in 2015 talking about his film Queen Nanny: Legendary Maroon Chieftainess.
Roy T. Anderson is an award winning stuntman, appearing in over 200 films. He also makes documentaries about significant figures in the history of Africans and those with African ancestry, bringing out stories most people are not familiar with. The technique of Roy’s documentaries is very accessible, utilizing archival material where possible, and actors portraying iconic moments. His films are riveting.
Marcus Garvey was a controversial figure in the early 20th Century, whose intentions to level the playing field for Africans and all black people, were viewed as threatening to the status quo, and were thus vilified. In this film we get to hear from Marcus Garvey in his own words, and the words of people who knew him, as we learn about his story, his experiences, his life.
