Earlier this year, Filmmakers Omowale Afrika & Frank Edwards, packed up their film equipment for an exploratory journey to Mississippi. They went in search of information about one of the most dedicated warriors Black America has ever known, Baba Hannibal Tirus Afrik.

Their mission was simple, learn as much as possible about Baba Hannibal's Vision & Mission, and reintroduce it to this generation.

They achieved their first goal, and on June 5, 2022, what would've been Baba Hannibal's 88th birthday, they released their findings in an article titled, Reparations, Food Sovereignty, and Starvation in America.

Omowale and Frank are now in the pre-production phase for their new film project, Hannibal: The Fight for Food Sovereignty in the South. The goal of this new project is to heighten the level of awareness around the Global Food Crisis, and to make it clear to Black America that Food Self Sufficiency is our only path to sustaining and protecting our freedom.
