Runaway Slave Movie - Trailer #2 with special message from CL Bryant
Human Events Beginning with its Jan. 13 Hollywood premiere, a black pastor and civil rights leader is introducing nationally his provocative film, “Runaway Slave,” which documents how government programs enslave his community.
“I hope that the impact of this film will be to strengthen the resolve of the black community, not to be taken for granted by those who have used them to secure elected office over the last 50 years,” said Rev. C. L. Bryant, a former Garland, Texas NAACP chapter president and the creator of the film.
“There is a 50-year-old lie that caused an entire people to become slaves to the political idea that the government knows best,” he said.
Because Bryant is escaping from this slavery, he is a runaway slave, and to help others he building the new Underground Railroad, he said.
“I hope the impact of this film will be to put these words in the mouths of black Americans: ‘Never again will we be co-opted and used by those who make money from our vote,’” he said.
