The documentary, “Emancipation Revelation/Revolution,” discusses the fate of Black Americans who dare leave the plantation of liberalism, political correctness and victimization. “They are riding the underground railroad to free speech and association and rejecting the stereotypes that have been placed on them by the party that claims to be their liberator,” claims author, Mason Weaver.
Outspoken political activists such as Star Parker, Jesse Peterson, Niger Innis, and Alveda King, share, in the most intimate terms, what happens to them when they speak out against the Democratic party, and embrace a conservative philosophy. Authors Shelby Steele reveals that since announcing that he is a born-again conservative, “he is the freest man in America because he owes nothing to anyone.” Rev. O’Neal Dozier echoes his sentiments by saying, “I am free, I can say what I want, preach what I want and no one can tell me what to say or do.”
The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Alveda King, shares her memories of the civil rights struggles in the 1960’s and the tragedies that struck her family, and the current struggles she endures because she escaped the plantation of liberalism that the Democrat party has erected around an entire class of people.
The history of the two parties is discussed and explored and the discovery is profoundly different than popular perception. Two major historians, Rev. Peter Marshall, and David Barton, explain that the Republican Party was founded in 1854 specifically to abolish slavery, by abolitionists who left the Democrat party, joined with Free Soilers and conservatives Whigs.
Columnist and talk show host, Armstrong Williams, explains that the divisions in the nation today, are not along racial lines, but philosophical lines. He talks about why blacks, who have been silenced with pejorative and intimidated with threats, are not only leaving the plantation, but also are speaking up and speaking out. “They have nothing to show for supporting just one party for so long, they say, ‘why not support the Republican party?'”
This film exposes not only what they are saying . . .but what happens to them when they do speak out against government sponsored poverty programs that keep millions on a virtual plantation of victimization and poverty.
At a private screening on Oct. 2, Mychal Massie, radio talk show host declared, “Without question I believe “Emancipation Revelation/Revolution” to be one of the most quintessential documentaries of factual historical relevance produced in my lifetime. In a day and time when the overwhelming majority of Americans are blissfully ignorant of the factual history of Black involvement in our two party system; ERR reveals clearly and specifically that which the whitewashing of history has denied so many. It encourages dialogue and retrospection on a level heretofore not seen. ERR should not only be mandatory viewing, but it deserves a place in every home in America.”
ERR has was selected as one of the finalist films to be previewed in Hollywood, California at the Liberty Film Festival, on Oct. 22. Ted Hayes and Larry Elder presented the film. ERR received a standing ovation. ERR has also been selected to be presented in the prestigious NOIR film festival on Feb. 4th, 2006.
