S-CAR World Cafe Film Series: American Blackout
- March 11, 2014 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Arlington Campus, Metropolitan Building, John Burton Library, Room 5193
The School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (S-CAR) presents American Blackout as part of their World Cafe Film Series.
Chronicles the recurring patterns of disenfranchisement witnessed from 2000 to 2004 while following the story of Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, who not only took an active role in investigating these election debacles but also found herself in the middle of one after publicly questioning the Bush Administration about the 9-11 terrorist attacks. Some call Cynthia McKinney a civil rights leader among the ranks of Shirley Chisholm and Malcolm X. Others call her a conspiracy theorist and a 'looney.' American Blackout gains unprecedented access to one of the most controversial and dangerous politicians in America and examines the contemporary tactics used to control our democratic process and silence political dissent.
