“The Promised Ship” is a documentary that follows the oral history of the Black Star Line, a maritime venture undertaken by Marcus Garvey, the leader of the first massive Black Power movement of the 20th Century. The Black Star Line was a steamship line intended to bring Black people across the Atlantic in search of their lost homelands.
The old townspeople of Limon in Costa Rica recall the impact this adventure had on the banana barons and workers of the time, and keep alive the utopia that mobilized millions of people of African descent around the world.
