By popular demand, New York African Chorus Ensemble provides  free access to the movie, We Are The Endless Roar. The feature film showcases an immersive cultural, spiritual and business trip to Nigeria in 2018. The film helps to connect the dots between African American cultural practices and traditional African culture in danger of becoming extinct. Narratives by three Nigerian kings, namely; Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi; Emir of Argungu, Alhaji Sama' ila Mohammed Mera; Onikun of Ikun-Amure, Oba David Olusola Olatunde; President of ARSADIC, Chief Dr. Sola Atanda, Asiwaju Awo Agbaye; two African American travelers (Tami Tyree and Maleeka Harris), in addition to Executive Producer, Joyce Adewumi, provide context to the various places visited. You will laugh, cry and be inspired by the adventures of the travelers.
