About the Movie

FEAR OF A BLACK REPUBLICAN begins with the simple question… Does the Republican Party really want more African Americans? Independent filmmaker Kevin J. Williams takes a non-partisan journey over four years and two Presidential Elections to find out why there are so few Black Republicans and what that means for the future of the Two-Party Political System in America. From the Civil War to the Great Depression, the GOP was the Party for many African-Americans, but today, barely 10% of African Americans consider themselves to be Republican and Urban areas are no longer considered competitive parts of America’s Election map. Beginning in his hometown, Williams speaks with BOTH Democrats and Republicans as he takes a personal and sometimes humorous look at his own Republican Party’s efforts in urban areas versus the suburbs, the Democratic Party's success in retaining the African American vote, the seeming phenomenon of Black Republicans and what this all means for America. FEAR OF A BLACK REPUBLICAN gives audiences of all Demographics and Political Persuasions a ground-breaking and moving view of American Politics unlike any they have ever seen and one which they'll never forget. In FEAR OF A BLACK REPUBLICAN, Williams speaks with scholars such as Professors Cornel West and Howard Taylor; Presidential candidates Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Jim Gilmore and John McCain; political leaders like fmr. Maryland Lt. Governor and RNC Chairman Michael Steele and previous Chairman Ken Mehlman; fmr. New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman and Mayor Douglas H. Palmer, President of the U.S. Conference of Mayors; Conservative thinkers such as Newt Gingrich, Grover Norquist and Ann Coulter; and Commentators Tavis Smiley and Michelle Malkin, amongst many others. Also interviewed is the first and last Black Republican Senator popularly elected since Reconstruction, former Senator Edward Brooke of Massachusetts. Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Senator and President-Elect Barack Obama, President George W. Bush and Vice-President Dick Cheney also appear in FEAR OF A BLACK REPUBLICAN… In addition, the film includes very rarely seen archival footage of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., Vice-President Richard M. Nixon and the great baseball pioneer Jackie Robinson. The film also examines the History of the Republican Party since its founding.

Brilliant and even handed documentary

As a Latino Republican, I can relate to the problem the GOP has reaching out to minority communities and the points made in this film are very valid and the GOP heads could learn alot with this film.

As a democrat, I can say that this is one of the most sensible political critiques by a republican that I've ever heard or seen. Bravo, sir, for refusing to pander to the radical right like so many of your fellow republican entertainers do.
