Out of Africa was a big Box Office movie hit, in 1985. It won Best Picture at the Oscars and grossed almost 230 million dollars.

About a man whose ancestors were part of the MAROONS of GHANA They were human cargo of the Dutch slave trade that brought slaves to South America to work on the plantations of Dutch Guiana, now called Suriname. There are 3 Guianas: French, Dutch and British.
