On January 13, FreedomWorks Foundation helped host a sneak peek viewing of a powerful new documentary about race, politics, and individual liberty entitled Runaway Slave.
Attending this sold out screening were some of the most prominent African-Americans in the conservative movement including former presidential candidate Herman Cain, talk show host David Webb, political humorist AlfonZo Rachel, and the star of Runaway Slave, Rev. C.L. Bryant.
The documentary follows Bryant as he interviews African-American politicians, holds meetings with community activists, and discovers the unknown history of the Civil Rights Movement. Runaway Slave also exposes the NAACP as a mouthpiece of the Democratic Party, and the NAACP’s leaders as the ultimate “race hustlers” who perpetuate—and profit—from a victim mentality that hurts the African-American community.
The theme of Runaway Slave is compelling: while the African-American community has triumphed over the scourge of physical slavery, many still suffer from a mental slavery—to government. And what emerges from this posit is an authentic and honest discussion of race in America, a discussion Americans need to have together.
“There is a 50-year-old lie that has caused an entire people to become harlots to the political idea that government knows what is best,” declares Bryant.
Committed to destroying that lie by creating a “new Underground Railroad”, Bryant interviews visionaries like Dr. Alveda King, Economist Thomas Sowell, Florida Congressman Allen West, Presidential Candidate Herman Cain, commentator and activist Star Parker and talk show host David Webb.
Watch reactions to the screening of Runaway Slave:
Founder of the Frederick Douglass Foundation, Timothy Johnson, provides perhaps the most commanding moment in the film, declaring that he sees himself as more than an African-American: “I am an American.”
“No matter where you place yourself on the political spectrum, this film is worth viewing. It offers insights into the last fifty years of the American experience that are valuable to any citizen,” wrote a film critic after the screening. “The conclusion of the film is extremely powerful and will be moving for anyone who loves the United States of America.” Find out more about the film here.
We are now in the process of hosting more viewings of Runaway Slave across the country, but we need your help.
