Youssou N’Dour: Retour a Gorée

Playing in a limited engagement at the Vancouver International Film Centre, the film Youssou N’Dour: Retour a Gorée is well worth seeing. It shows one of the world’s greatest singers in his homeland, and a view of the history of the legacy of colonialism that is educational.

I had never heard of Gorée or its Door of No Return. They seem to have skipped over it in my history education. I’m not surprised.
