Storyline

"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 somehow become more elusive? In RUNAWAY SLAVE, 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 through entitlements has created a new form of slavery. Celebrate freedom! Written by Luke Livingston

Good for thinkers - Bad for Kool-Aid drinkers
27 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you're a Communist or Neo-Nazi this film is not for you.

If you're an American wondering why generational poverty is so pervasive in the American black community this film will shed some light on how we got here. It explores why so many American blacks continue to feel they are victims and why they remain unable to break out of the poverty brought upon them by the government programs designed to help them, and why there's nearly unanimous support of the Progressive people and programs which seem intended on destroying them.

If you're looking to inform yourself or others about who really supported civil rights from the Civil War to the 1960s, there are also some good Historical notes and perspectives provided throughout.

It was also nice to see proud, hopeful Americans willing to look beyond the troubles of the past towards a better tomorrow.

It's bit slow in places and a bit flashy with unnecessary editing, but valuable for the facts offered and for the perspectives given, even if you don't agree with C.L. Bryant or others appearing.
