Finding Samuel Lowe: From Harlem to China- a documentary
Jamaican-American journalist and filmmaker Paula Madison called her award-winning documentary Finding Samuel Lowe:  From Harlem to China, “the fulfillment of a longing.”  That longing was to find the relatives of her long lost Chinese grandfather, Samuel Lowe.  They were led to the Haka Conference in Toronto, to beautiful Jamaica, and then to China, where they united with hundreds of Chinese relatives they never imagined existed.  The journey spans from Toronto to Jamaica to China where they united with hundreds of Chinese relatives they never imagined existed… And they found two of their Chinese cousins living right here in Tampa!
Following the screening, Paula Madison answers questions about how she and her two brothers- all Jamaican-Americans- found their Chinese relatives.
