"Africa's Black Star" tells the political rise and fall of Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana's and Africa's first independent president after colonial rule. The former President of Ghana Dr Kwame Nkrumah, was dubbed "the Man of the Millennium" by BBC World Service listeners.

The film covers Nkrumah's phenomenal rise to power, Africa's independence movement, his successes and losses, the internal and external enemies, the 1966 coup and the continuation of his legacy in Ghana and Africa. This is a ground-breaking documentary with beautiful visuals of the country and unprecedented access from family members, friends, politicians and historians from Ghana, the UK and the USA.
