‘Runaway Slave’ is a compelling, insightful look at how government policies have systematically re-enslaved the black population in the United States. Through entitlements and other government programs, a perpetual state of welfare exists, creating what can only be described as a form of modern slavery for a large percentage of the African-American community.
The documentary features Rev. C.L. Bryant, who proudly refers to himself as a “runaway slave.” This former NAACP chapter president left the organization after concluding its goals were more about political posturing than actual civil rights. Rev. Bryant says he escaped the bondage of progressivism and denounced the shackles of entitlements. He now has committed himself to helping others secure the blessings of liberty that are guaranteed by the Constitution.
While Rev. Bryant’s compelling story helps launch the film, we soon discover he is not alone as he treks across the new Underground Railroad in America. ‘Runaway Slave’ features interviews with politicians, community leaders and everyday Americans; including Dr. Alveda King (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece), economist and author Thomas Sowell, Congressman Allen West, presidential candidate Herman Cain, commentator and radio/tv host Glenn Beck, syndicated columnist Star Parker and the late conservative activist/editor, Andrew Breitbart.
‘Runaway Slave’ is a history lesson not being taught in the public schools: a revealing look at legislation aimed at curbing and controlling the black population and the results that have kept them on the government “plantation.” The question the movie dares to ask: “Are African Americans truly ‘free at last’?”
A brief synopsis
“Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, we’re free at last!” Nearly a half-century after these words were spoken, has Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream become reality? Or has that longed-for freedom somehow become even more elusive?
In ‘Runaway Slave’, an intriguing new documentary that opens in theaters this July, Rev. C.L. Bryant journeys across America to find the answer.
Using leading black conservatives as “conductors,” this one-time NAACP local chapter president blazes a new Underground Railroad to help liberate all Americans from the Government plantation that has created a new form of slavery: entitlements.
