Talk:500 Years Later
|WikiProject Film||(Rated Start-class)|
This article reads like an advertisement. In fact, a lot of the text seems to be lifted straight from the press kit, see for example this google search and  and  (that latter page mentions 'summary written by Halaqah Media'). Examples of problematic phrases:
- '500 Years Later engages the authentic retrospective voice, told from the African vantage-point of those whom history has sought to silence by examining the collective atrocities that uprooted Africans from their culture and homeland.'
- '500 Years Later is a timeless compelling journey'
- 'Here, we have a taste of the breadth of this rich cultural legacy that often has to exist within the limited confines of the genres defined and created by others outside of itself.'
- 'A full cast from some of the best minds in the African American (and African) academic world'
okay mark you should rewrite the problem text---Halaqah 12:07, 6 October 2006 (UTC) Okay since no one would clean up this article i have done it, i have deleted the "promotional" copy and paste parts of it which come from the press kit.--Halaqah 20:55, 18 October 2006 (UTC)
፭፻ doesnt work in the article-
I recently watched this, and the claims were mostly verifiable or reasonable. Once claim was that 'the first person convicted under the British Incitement to Racial Hatred laws was an African-Carbbean man'. I can't find evidence for this claim, but I can find it quoted elsewhere. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 21:51, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
