No movie is 100% Historically accurate. Not even the White ones. These are not documentaries. They are Hollywood movies. These movies should lead people to seek out the real history of Dahomey, the Oyo Empire (Yoruba), The Agojie, African Martial Arts, African Spirituality, Ifa, the Orisha like Ogun mentioned in the film, The Franco-Dahomean Wars 1890s, Colonialism, Berlin Conference of 1884 - 1885, Great Britain abolishing Slavery in 1834 after being involved in Slavery for 272 years, etc.
