Here is a clip from Hidden Colors 1 where Tariq Nasheed discussing The Moors. Check out http://hiddencolorsfilm.com/ to purchase both films.

The original statue of Liberty gifted by the French to America was not the stern-faced green Roman looking woman that you see today holding a tablet and a torch. The original and first Statue of Liberty was a Black woman holding the broken shackles of slavery. She was refused on the notion that the black statue would be a constant reminder of the liberty that the slaves earned, from successfully fighting in the American Civil War. The true Black Statue of Liberty remains rejected, forgotten and lost in broken fragments of Black history.
My Hero’s, members of the Black Panther Party on February 29, 1969, led by Lt.
