Description: United States of Africa follows African hip hop pioneer Didier Awadi as he crafts a new album that shines a light on black revolutionary leaders - from Kwame Nkrumah to Thomas Sankara, from Malcolm X to Cheikh Antah Diop, who fought for the dignity of the African people, and for an independent united Africa. On a sprawling musical journey that takes him to 40 countries, Awadi meets hip hop artists Smokey (Burkina Faso), M-1 from Dead Prez (United States) and Zuluboy (South Africa). The film is a call for Africans of all generations to take a stand, and take control of their continent and their destiny.
