Actor Danny Glover and director Manthia Diawara travel through West Africa from Goree to Dogon, creating conversations that link different sides and accounts of the African diaspora. "Diaspora Conversations" traces a journey of memory. Traversing through various locales, they negotiate between the current impact of globalization and the historical questions that both confront and facilitate community. Diawara's prose-like narrative guides the viewer through this video diary that examines the conflicting, yet mutually intersecting, legacies of colonialism and cultural tradition. Both anthropology and recollection, "Diaspora Conversations" travels a terrain that provokes the viewer to interrogate "cultural tourism".
