Come join the conversation with Sunsara Taylor and Min. Robert Muhammad as they discuss: Is religion a creation of humanity whose time has long passed? Or, does it serve some deeper need of human beings? Are beliefs in God(s) obstacles or are these beliefs pathways to understanding and changing the world and to the emancipation of humanity?

The Land Speaks Arabic
Maryse Gargour

In this documentary the late 19th century birth of Zionism—and its repercussions for Palestinians—is detailed with original source documents, Zionist leaders' quotations, rare archival footage, testimonies of witnesses and interviews with historians. All help to illustrate that the expulsion of the indigenous Arab population from Palestine was far from an accidental result of the 1948 war. This award-winning film shines a spotlight on the ethnic cleansing of Palestine by the Zionist movement.
