There are even sure features of African American culture that were brought into being or made more conspicuous as an aftereffect of slavery; a sample of this is the way drumming got to be utilized as a method for correspondence and setting up a community character amid that time. The outcome is a dynamic, inventive culture that has had and keeps on having a significant effect on standard American culture and on world culture too. After Emancipation, these extraordinarily African American traditions kept on growing. They formed into particular traditions in music, workmanship, writing, religion, nourishment, occasions, amongst others. While for quite a while sociologists accepted that African Americans had lost most cultural ties with Africa, there is a continuum of African traditions among Africans in the New World from the West Indies to the United States.

Sung by the griot Djeli Mamoudou Kouyaté, and written in prose by D.T. Niane is an epic steeped in an unequivocal blend of African tradition, myth, and history, Sundiata: An Epic of Old Mali. The epic begins by tracing the patrilineality of the Father of Mali who was predestined by a soothsayer to be the seventh conqueror of the earth. Sundiata for most of his childhood was incapable of walking; as a result of his physical limitation many assumed he would not fulfil the soothsayer’s prophecy, despite being wise beyond his years. Subsequent to the death of his father, Sundiata, his mother Sogolon, and his brother Manding Bory fled from Mali in fear of persecution, and exile by his stepmother Sassouma Bérété.
The addition of this information is to make the movie more interesting, but at the same time it takes away from the historic aspects of the middle ages for example. The postmodern approach has been put into place to make it seem more relevant to the ideas that are currently going around (Race, 1-3).

Elelwani is continuing this rejection of the distorted black history. The film focuses on the idea of arranged marriage. But instead of nullifying it as the West would, the film celebrates it. Everything that the white colonialists victimised and rejected in Africa – culture, traditional healers, traditional attires, and African marriage practices – the film celebrates them. In this regard, I will argue that Wa Luruli joins some of the African filmmakers who have embarked on a journey to correct the colonial damages – lack of identity and a sense of no belonging - that the whites left on the people of this
