From the creators of Tea Party: The Documentary Film, RUNAWAY SLAVE exposes the economic slavery of the black community to progressive, big government policies.
The film kicks off with a limited opening in Shreveport, LA beginning July 6 followed by a bus tour that visits influential cities along our country’s former Underground Railroad route. With distribution through Rocky Mountain Pictures, RUNAWAY SLAVE opens in theaters nationwide beginning July 27.
The film’s central figure is self-professed “runaway slave” Rev. C.L. Bryant. A former NAACP chapter president in Garland, TX, Rev. Bryant abandoned an organization he felt was more about political posturing, and less about civil rights. As a former Democratic Radical who escaped the bondage of Progressivism and denounced the shackles of entitlements, he has committed himself to helping others secure the blessings of liberty that are guaranteed by the Constitution with his newfound conservative values.
Rev. Bryant takes viewers on an historic journey across America that traces the footsteps of runaway slaves who escaped to freedom along routes that became known as the Underground Railroad. But in the film, he also travels a “new underground railroad” upon which Black Conservatives are speaking out against big government policies which have established a “new plantation” where “overseers” like the NAACP and so-called “civil rights” leaders keep the Black community 95 percent beholden to one political party.
RUNAWAY SLAVE’s heroes are black conservatives who are speaking out so that all Americans can truly be “free at last.” These “conductors” desire to liberate all Americans from the Government Plantation that has left the black community dealing with this new form of slavery.
Citing well-documented statistics that demonstrate increasingly high rates of abortion, crime, unemployment and single parent households in the black community, the film features interviews and commentary with politicians, pundits, authors and everyday Americans. Images from national events in Washington, D.C. provide a shocking look into the mindset of the liberal left as they seek to oppress black Americans in all aspects of daily life.
The documentary’s underlying theme asks the questions:
What does the black community have to show for its 95% support of the Democratic Party?
Is it truly “free at last?”
RUNAWAY SLAVE features interviews with a number of prominent conservatives in the movement, including controversial radio host Glenn Beck, author Deneen Borelli, the late commentator and author Andrew Breitbart, businessman and political commentator Stephen Broden, GOP Presidential Candidate Herman Cain, president of the Frederick Douglass Foundation of North Carolina Kevin Daniels, radio host and author Tony Katz, minister and author Alveda King, activist Star Parker, TV and radio host Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, humorist AlfonZo Rachel, author Marvin Rogers, columnist and author Erik Rush, comedian Sonja Schmidt, author and commentator K. Carl Smith, economist Thomas Sowell, radio host and author Mason Weaver, radio host David Webb, Congressman Allen West and writer Bill Whittle.
Rev. Bryant’s message? It’s time to run. “Run away from economic slavery. Run toward the blessings of liberty. Let us remain strong in this fight. Run away from socialism, run away from progressivism. And if you get tired, America…run harder!”
RUNAWAY SLAVE was created by Ground Floor Video in association with Freedom Works Foundation and Filmcrest Entertainment. Distribution is through Rocky Mountain Pictures. In theaters nationwide starting July 27, 2012.
