Boy oh boy, the liberal Hollywood elites do not want people to see this film. So it is being released by alternate distribution methods to theaters. I urge everyone to go see it. The premier has already happened. Get the DVD (when it comes out) if it is not playing in your area.
Free At Last? New Documentary, Runaway Slave, Shows How Liberal Agenda Continues To Enslave Black America
LA Premiere of Runaway Slave on MLK weekend offers a revealing look inside the new Underground Railroad and the fight to free black America from economic slavery.
(Washington, D.C.) – January 1, 2012 – Have blacks in America achieved the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and become truly “Free at Last?” A powerful new documentary, Runaway Slave, premiering on January 13th at the Landmark Regent Theater in Los Angeles, CA, tackles this question and exposes the economic slavery of the black community to the ‘progressive,’ big-government policies of the Left. Herman Cain with many Hollywood celebrities will attend the red carpet event and screening. Pastor and former NAACP Chapter President C.L. Bryant hosts an in-depth look at the “new underground railroad” through which African Americans are finding freedom from an ingrained cultural acceptance of entitlements and big government. “There is a 50-year-old lie that has caused an entire people to become slaves to the political idea that government knows what is best.” Rev. Bryant said. “Runaway Slave will empower black Americans to free themselves from generations of enslavement to a tyrannical economic system.”
Rev. Bryant’s own life provides unique insights into the racial and political issues of the day. A former chapter president of the Garland, Texas, NAACP, former Democratic activist, and pastor; Bryant had a front row seat to the civil rights movement in the South.
The film features interviews from prominent black conservatives including Herman Cain and Thomas Sowell, as well as activists from all over the country. It is sure to spark an honest political discussion unlike anything the U.S. has seen in 50 years. Cain says in the film; “the increasing size and scope of the federal government is the new plantation.”
Rev. Bryant has teamed up with critically-acclaimed Producer Luke Livingston and Director Pritchett Cotten for the making of Runaway Slave. Livingston featured a powerful Tea Party speech by Bryant to provide the inspirational close his 2009 film Tea Party: The Documentary. Filming and editing for Runaway Slave took a little over a year start to finish. Shooting took place in many major cities across America, including Israel.
“We are incredibly excited to be a part of this project,” said Matt Kibbe, president of FreedomWorks. The national grassroots organization is helping support this important film. “Runaway Slave is a film for all Americans. If you love your country, if you love the ideas that this country was founded on, then you should see this movie.”
The film will be shown in select theaters nationwide following the upcoming premiere at the soon to be announced first ever American Black Conservative Conference in Washington DC.
