Later this Friday, an Anchorage theater will host a screening of a provocative film that looks at one of the nation’s most misunderstood and often maligned groups – conservative black Americans.

Featuring a collection of intimate interviews with some of America’s most provocative black conservative thinkers, “Uncle Tom: An Oral History of the American Black Conservative” takes a different look at being black in America.

The documentary movie includes media personalities, ministers, civil rights activists, veterans and a self-employed plumber as it explores their personal journeys of navigating the cultural and political landscape of America.

According to the movie website, the film is directed by Justin Malone and produced by Larry Elder.

“An Uncle Tom is someone who sold out and embraced the white man by rejecting the idea that you’re a victim,” Elder says in the film.

Throughout the movie interviewees embrace their outsider status among the popular culture and even criticize black leaders like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and even Barack Obama, who they claim had some things correct but ultimately betrayed blacks by playing the race card.

They also view the massive Democratic welfare programs as forms of oppression that have destroyed families, separated fathers from children and hindered black Americans from finding personal success and self-sufficiency.

The movie highlights a number of black conservatives like Dr. Ben Carson, Candice Owens, Carol Swain and the late Herman Cain. It also features historic black figures like Booker T. Washington and Fredrick Douglas.

The film will show at E Street Theater (315 E Street, Anchorage) in Anchorage on Feb. 18 at 7 p.m. The cost is $25 a seat and all proceeds will go to support Anchorage Assembly candidate Stephanie Taylor. She is a conservative black woman running against leftist Assemblyman Forrest Dunbar in the upcoming April election.

Appetizers and drinks will be served at the event beginning at 6:30 p.m. The movie starts at 7 p.m. and popcorn and candy will be included.

    Love this movie telling the truth, about all these lies.
    Especially to beat this loser Dunbar

  • DoneWithIt says:

    The Left deploys the bigotry of low expectations when it comes to black America.
    The idea that blacks can’t get / don’t have ID to vote in elections is extremely insulting.
    Malcolm X had it right – the gravest threat to black Americans is liberal whites.
    Martin Luther King was a staunch Republican.
    Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.
    Republicans sponsored and passed Civil Rights legislation, ended Jim Crow laws, and made illegal poll taxes and literacy tests.
    Democrats fought them every step of the way.
