BLACK HISTORY STUDIES AND DECOLONISING THE ARTS PRESENTS THE UK PREMIERE OF THE HOUSE ON COCO ROAD WITH DIRECTOR Q&A ON SATURDAY 24TH JUNE 2017 AT RIO CINEMA.

The House on Coco Road

In 1979 the Grenadian people carry out the first successful revolution in the English speaking Caribbean. Maurice Bishop becomes Prime Minister. The Revolution attracts workers from around the world including my mother, Fannie Haughton. In 1982 Angela Davis, her family, and my mother visit Grenada to witness this miraculous Peoples’ Revolution.

In 1983 my mother is offered a position in the Ministry of Education and we leave our home in Oakland and move to Grenada. I’d never seen her happier…

In 2014, I discovered a box of family super 8 footage of my great grandmother in rural Louisiana on the land our family sharecropped and my grandmother’s migration west. I started to unravel my mother’s path to activism. I started to understand why my mother, and a group of tireless women, had put their lives on the line, daring to build a better world. You may not know their names, but they have changed the course of history…

The screening will be followed by a panel Q&A with Director Damani Baker and more
