Global Peeks W/ Brian E. Muhammad interviews Documentary Film Makers/Activists Ayman El Sayed, HarrabicTubman & live from Jerusalem, Afro Palestinian Society leader Yasser Qous about the plight of Black Palestinians and the forthcoming documentary film  Cushi – Being Black in the Holy Land,

The term "Cushi" is the only Israeli word for blacks literally translating to "Nigger". The fact that this is the only word in Hebrew to describe people of African descent or those with dark skin denotes the racism prevalent in Israeli society today. 

This film will document the conditions and treatment of several Black communities within the Holy land in an effort to bring them together.

Harrabic Tubman & Ayman El Sayed is Founders of the Grassroots organization “Existence is Resistance”.

Largely unknown in the Western world is the fact that the Original people of what is called the Middle East are dark skinned Black people who existed in those lands from the beginning & are still there—for the most part marginalized and oppressed. In so-called Israel (Occupied Palestine) the indegenous Black population suffers a double oppression for being both Palestinian & Black.
