Chasing Ubuntu is a documentary that intertwines ACCEC's ANZA Entrepreneurship learning journey through using the incorporation of the profound African Indigenous philosophy of Ubuntu in addressing anti-black racism by building youth of African descent's spirit, dignity, and economic sovereignty, facilitated by a process rooted in community-based learning.

hasing Ubuntu is a documentary that intertwines ACCEC's ANZA Entrepreneurship learning journey through using the incorporation of the profound African Indigenous philosophy of Ubuntu in addressing anti-black racism by building youth of African descent's spirit, dignity, and economic sovereignty, facilitated by a process rooted in community-based learning.

As the story unfolds, witness the lives of resilient youths who find themselves at the crossroads of adversity and promise. Delve deep into the profound connections forged within the ANZA community— a tale of rebirth and a testament to the essence of Ubuntu—where individuals, uplifted by the collective spirit, in turn, become pillars of strength for their community.

This cinematic experience is more than just a documentary; it's a call to action, an inspiration to embark on our own journeys of renewal. "Chasing Ubuntu" challenges us to embrace the interconnected narrative of life, where our individual growth is intricately woven into the fabric of our shared existence. In this collective odyssey, we discover that, as interconnected heroes, our stories converge and flourish together.

Don't miss out on a night filled with networking, thought-provoking discussions, and an exclusive peek into some impactful initiatives!
