World renowned journalist, and award-winning filmmaker Rahiem Shabazz presents the third installment of his docu-series Elementary Genocide: Academic Holocaust. The first two documentaries in the series; The School To Prison Pipeline and Elementary Genocide 2: The Board Of Education vs. The Board of Incarceration received critical acclaim and launched Shabazz as a political pundit and academic ambassador for the African American community.Elementary Genocide: Academic Holocaust adds more statistical proof of the scholastic inequalities faced by Original people around the country. The documentary revisits the importance of education and its impact on self-image, family structure, financial freedom and the collective future of African/indigenous people in America and abroad. With commentary from some of the 21st century's greatest minds of the African diaspora in America, such as financial scholar and social commentator Dr. Boyce Watkins, esteemed Pan-Afrikan scholar and Professor James Small, and Kaba Kamene, international homeschooling advocate Samori Camara, Hip Hop artist and education advocate David Banner, National Talk Show Host and Lecturer Michael Imhotep and best-selling author Shahrazad Ali, Shabazz was able to illustrate the hypocrisy behind America's public school system and how the infrastructure is designed to keep people of color from developing the capacity to recreate themselves, their families and their institutions with their own hands.PURCHASE DVDDIRECT STREAM

Atlanta Filmmaker Continues to Explore the School-to-Prison Pipeline with Third Installment of Film

Julia Bond once said, "Violence is Black children going to school for 12 years and receiving six years' worth of education."With incredible nuance and skill, award-winning filmmaker Rahiem Shabazz expresses the same sentiments in his critically acclaimed documentary series "Elementary Genocide." At the front and center of the controversial film is the issue of the school-to-prison pipeline, a systematic cycle that funnels children into the prison industrial complex. Many refuse to believe there is a targeted attack on the minds of Black youths through the education system, but Shabazz explores the outcomes of the education system on Black youths and the resulting funneling of them through the revolving doors of the criminal justice system.The film made headlines for exposing this damning process, which largely affects Black children in poor neighborhoods. Part 2 of the film, titled "Elementary Genocide 2: The Board of Education vs. The Board of Incarceration," takes an even deeper look at the history of America's school system and how it was made to subjugate Black Americans. This installment proves that something threatening is afloat by digging deeper to explore its origin, its existence and how to plot a change that could save Black children.Cont'd Reading
