When we think of Michael Jackson, we think of an African-American superstar whose celebrity transcended race and colour.

However, despite his skin bleaching transformation in the 1980's, Jackson was very conscious and proud of his African heritage and in this short video, the global phenomenon gives us an insight into his love of Africa, it's people and culture and the continent's significant place in human history.

Also in this video, put together by Birmingham documentary maker, Ankhobia Carvalho, Michael talks about the origin of his famous, 'Moonwalk' dance, giving credit to the 'Harlem ghetto children' who he first saw performing it.
