Dayton filmmaker Askia Holloway introduces African American, an extraordinary examination of tensions between black Americans and black students from Africa at Central State University.
Central State University is a historically black college in Ohio. This new documentary presents remarkably honest testimony from African-American and African students attending the school. The students acknowledge the differences among them while striving for understanding. The film won the Best Short Documentary Award at this year's Nashville Film Festival and Best Documentary at the Atlanta Independent Film Festival. Holloway, who is based in Dayton, received an Ohio Arts Council Fellowship in 2004 in support of the film's production. (23 mins.)
