Here's a recommendation from our International Studies Librarian of a
documentary on African Diaspora-

Awara Soup available from California newsreel.

"Awara Soup introduces us to what must be one of the world's most
multicultural communities, a global village in the backcountry of French
Guyana - an overseas department of France perched on the edge of South
America. Three hundred years of world history intersect in Mana, a town
where 1,500 people speak 13 different languages and live together in
remarkable harmony. Awara Soup reveals that "creolization" is not just an
historical artifact but a dynamic, ongoing process, encompassing more and
more of the world's people."
