Summary Meet kungfu's black pioneers and heroes who fluorished at the junction of African American and Asian cultures. The Black Kungfu Experience traces the rise of black kungfu in the United States in the 1960s and 1970s, and resonates in the contemporary martial arts scene in Washington D.C, Los Angeles, The Virgin Islands, Jamaica, and Hong Kong. Chinese and African American experiences evolve differently yet converge in unexpected ways; they challenge political and social persecution - from shadows of the Qing government's oppressive rule in China, and British colonialism in Hong Kong, to entrenched American racism - with the unique vehicle of kungfu.
Audience Rated PG.
