I look at this and I was wondering is there a way to access English sub titles?

We will be screening this in Chicago soon. I have made contact with the distributors.

I just posted this trailer on my website. www.brownfuture.com. I would love to show Njinga for Black History Month at the school where I teach.

Amazing that this didn't get any buzz. I'm making everyone I know aware of it. Thanks Jarvis, for uncovering this gem.
