Dec. 20, 2013 - PRLog -- The Lessons of Hayti, a documentary film about the history of Black self-empowerment in America, winner of Best Documentary at the 2013 Harlem International Film Festival and Best Historical Documentary at the 2013 AFI World Peace Initiative in East Hampton, New York, will make its West Coast premiere at the 22nd Annual Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles, CA, which takes place February 6-17, 2014.

This year's festival will also honor trailblazers and pioneers in the film industry.

The Lessons of Hayti details the historic rise of African American self-determination and economic empowerment following the Civil War and highlights a period in American history that saw more than 100 independent Black towns and more than 70 Historic Black Colleges and Universities built within 40 years of President Abraham Lincoln's signing of the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863.
