Taaqiy Grant is the Executive Producer of two groundbreaking documentaries, NUBIA – the untold story and the Tekhen – Uncovering the influence of Ancient Egypt. The upcoming documentary entitled HAPI details the Role of Economics on the Development of Civilization. HAPI is the earliest name known for the principle the Ancient Egyptians described as the Nile River. The film begins by exploring the role of the Nile and its importance in the development of civilization. The film then moves forward to discuss the development of Western civilization and its economic foundation. Throughout the film we will also examine how this history directly impacts us today.

In an effort to complete this project we're bringing together some of the brightest minds in psychology, history, and business to explore the “BIG PICTURE”, tying together the history of world economic development to our present socio-economic condition. HAPI investigates the failure of a consumption driven Black economy through the lens of cause and effect, from systemic poverty, disenfranchisement and the decline of entrepreneurship. HAPI addresses many complex problems and suggests innovative ideas for successfully competing in the global economy.

We’ve self-funded this important project for several months and now we’re asking for your support. Your contributions will go toward:

The analysis of the three essential components of life comes forth from the legendary Dr. Leonard Jeffries: Economics plays a fundamental role in life. Any system or government has to have as its foundation economics, which is complimented by politics and then politics and economics are meaningfully put together by culture. Economics is a major factor in the development of any culture, any civilization, any nation, any empire and any institution. The framework for HAPI underscores the importance of understanding, economics, politics, culture and how it relates to us. Thus economic empowerment through economic literacy is the vision and the mission. #Hapifilm #Hapimovement #Tehutifilms #Webuyblack #Buyblack

How are economics, politics and culture interrelated? What role have they played on the development of civilization, independently and as an interconnected force? HAPI underscores the importance of these fundamental principles and how we must manage them effectively to achieve our goals. Represented throughout the film will be examples of how successful we were when we managed our economics, politics and culture. HAPI will also demonstrate how this is the solution for most of our issues today. We must learn how to apply that same science our Ancestors used and exercise the use of these three dynamic forces cohesively if we're to be successful. #HAPIfilms #HAPImovement
