On Saturday 19th July 2014, Black History Studies hosted the UK Premiere of ‘Hidden Colors 3: The Rules Of Racism,‘ the third instalment of the critically acclaimed documentary series Hidden Colors 1 and 2. Black History Studies launched both Hidden Colors 1 and 2 in the UK and contributed towards the funding campaign for Hidden Colors 2 and 3. As a collective, members of the Black History Studies contributed $1000 dollars to the making of Hidden Colors 3 and were listed as an Associate Producer in the credits.
Hidden Colors 3 tackles the taboo subject of systematic racism. The film explores how institutional racism affects all areas of human activity and the rules, laws and public policies that are utilized to maintain this system. ‘Hidden Colors 3: The Rules of Racism’ features commentary from a diverse group of scholars, authors and entertainment icons, which includes David Banner, Nas, Paul Mooney, Dick Gregory, Tariq Nasheed, Dr Frances Cress Welsing, Dr Umar Johnson, George Fraser, Dr Phil Valentine, Carol Anderson, Khalil Gibran Muhammad, Kaba Kamene, Sharazad Ali and Dr Joy Degruy.
