Assistant Professor of Africana Studies Nigel Westmaas participated in a four-person panel who responded to questions at the University of Toronto launch of a new documentary film on March 26. The film, “W.A.R: (Walter Anthony Rodney) Stories,” captures the life and work of the renowned Guyanese historian and scholar-activist. Walter Rodney, an influence on the Black Power movement, Pan-Africanism, Caribbean independence and the idea of self-emancipation, was assassinated in 1980. Westmaas was also one of several advisors and archival consultants on the film.
