"Quilombo Country," the new documentary about communities founded by escaped slaves in Brazil, with hold its Bay Area premiere on Saturday, June 16th at noon at the Museum of the African Diaspora.

Brazil, once the world's largest slave colony, was brutal and deadly for millions of Africans. But many escaped or rebelled, creating their own communities, known as quilombos. Today they navigate the hazards of the modern world.

"Quilombo Country," narrated by Chuck D, the legendary front man of the hip hop band Public Enemy, examines black identity, land rights and racial attitudes today, and includes rare footage of festivals and ceremonies rooted in the lands these Afro-Brazilians were torn from centuries earlier.
