'American Blackout'


"...a muckracking indictment of ... the systematic disenfranchisement of African American voters..."
Kenneth Turan, LA TIMES
"McKinney has an endearing compulsion to speak truth to power, and her questions about these issues and 9-11 have gotten her into trouble." Ernest Hardy, LA Weekly

'American Blackout' is one of the most important of the deluge of political docs that have flooded the cultural landscape over the last several years. Kicking off with the detailed argument that black voters in Florida were systematically disenfranchised in the 2000 presidential election, the film then pulls double duty: It’s a fine-tooth examination of both the continued, unconstitutional marginalization of black voters in America and the attempts by various political and media machines to crush McKinney in retaliation for her outspokenness on that subject and on the illegality of the war in Iraq.
