Almost 3 million of America’s black population are foreign born and between 1980 and 2005 this population has more than tripled. By 2005, at least 1 million US born black children had at least one foreign born parent. To capture these developments, a new documentary film "The Neo African Americans" by director Kobina Aidoo looks at how “… rapid immigration from Africa and the Caribbean is  transforming the African American narrative".

The Neo-African Americans is a living documentary, a conversation. It's conversation about identity in America, it's conversation about immigration and for that matter the global movement of people.
