>>> LUMUMBA: DEATH OF A PROPHET (1992)
This documentary by Raoul Peck (who was born in Haiti but raised in what is now the Congo) reconsiders the legacy of Patrice Lumumba, the Pan-Africanist leader and first democratically elected president of the Congo. Lumumba held office for only a year before being imprisoned and murdered in a Belgian-backed military coup (urged and assisted by the CIA).
