10th Annual Sheba Film Festival - African Sun Times

OF IGBO SLAVE REBELLION AT ‘IGBO LANDING’, GEORGIA, AND IGBO JEWISH IDENTITY


By CHIKA ONYEANI

June 5, 2013 - Last night, we drove to Manhattan, New York, to attend a film festival, the Sheba Film Festival, at the Jewish Community Center on 334 Amsterdam Avenue. Notice I said ‘last night’, because it is the first time since my eye surgery on April 3, that I dared to drive in the night. Two weeks ago, I had received a email announcing that a film titled, “Sheba Film Festival Re-Emerging: The Jews of Nigeria,” would be shown at the Center. My interest was piqued because I know some of us Igbo have been claiming that we are Jews, and extensive ink has been expended in Ph.D dissertations by some Igbo in trying to prove that we are, what to many people has been an exercise in tomfoolery. Hence I decided to publicize the event extensively, thinking that a lot of the Igbo in the New York area might wish to attend.
