Some new info on this documentary film I first profiled last year, directed by Kevin J. Williams, and titled Fear of A Black Republican. The film asks why there aren't many Black Republicans, and how that fact influences/affects the current 2-party political system in the USA.

Timely, considering last night's Election results.

There's a much longer synopsis of the film, which includes talking heads like Cornell West and Tavis Smiley, on its website HERE. While there, you'll also find an FAQ page that answers questions about the film, like how it was financed, what its objective is, the origins of its title, and why its filmmakers are white, given the subject matter.

I received an email alerting me to the fact that the film is now available on DVD and VOD, so those interested in checking it out can do so right now!

I haven't seen it myself, so I can't offer any commentary. However, I'll be recieving a screener, which I'll watch and share my thoughts on here.

The film has screened in Atlanta, GA; Charlotte, NC; Greensboro, NC; Wilmington, DE; Kansas City, MO (Kansas City Urban Film Festival); Buffalo, NY; Rochester, NY; Trenton, NJ; Portland, OR; Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia, PA; Montgomery, AL; Jackson, MS; Dallas, TX; Waco, TX; Tucson, AZ; Albuquerque, NM; and Salina, KS.

You can find it on DVD on Amazon.com. Or VOD on Apple iTunes for Download or Rental. Visit their website for more info, www.fearofablackrepublican.com.
