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.

The premiere of the brilliant documentary Runaway Slave takes place this Friday, January 13 at the Landmark Regent Theater in Los Angeles.  Tickets for this event are FREE but seating is extremely limited and will sell out very quickly so go to brownpapertickets.com to reserve your tickets now.

The documentary is an extraordinary look at the unique struggles Conservative blacks have in America and features interviews with some of the greatest minds of our generation.

The producers purposely chose to launch Runaway Slave on Martin Luther King Jr. weekend to help answer the question, “Have blacks in America achieved the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and become truly ‘Free at Last?’”  Runaway Slave exposes the economic slavery of the black community to the ‘progressive,’ big-government policies of the Left.

According to pastor and former NAACP Chapter President C.L. Bryant, there is a “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.”

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 inspiraitonal 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.”

Patriot Update and PolitiChick’s Ann-Marie Murrell will cover the red carpet at the Los Angeles screening, interviewing stars of the film including Herman Cain and many Hollywood celebrities.

The film will be shown in select theatres nationwide following the upcoming premiere at the soon to be announced first ever American Black Conservative Conference in Washington DC.
