We wish everyone a happy and safe 4th of July weekend!
Our next meeting is on Tuesday, July 7th, at 7 p.m. We will be showing the newly released film UNCLE TOM At the Gourmet Waffle Shop Cafe, 2418 W. Morton St, Denison TX
In a collection of intimate interviews with some of America’s most provocative black conservative thinkers, Uncle Tom takes a different look at being black in America. It features media personalities, ministers, civil rights activist, veterans, and a self-employed plumber.
On June 19, also known as Juneteenth, the celebration of the end of slavery in the United States, the film “Uncle Tom” was released. It follows a young, black, Christian contractor, Chad Johnson, who was a long-time Democrat until challenged by a fellow Christian to read the platforms of the Democrat and Republican parties. He did, and Johnson was shocked to discover that his support for limited government, low taxes, and school choice, and his opposition to abortion on demand, made him a ... Republican!
“Uncle Tom” explores the often-vicious blowback Johnson got from friends and family, let alone others, when he announced his conversion. Instead of Johnson’s evolution sparking a healthy discussion about which party’s policies better advance the interests of Blacks, Johnson found himself being called “Uncle Tom,” a “sellout” and a “self-loather.” The film simply asks: “Why is there no respectful disagreement in the black community?
The cast includes Larry Elders (Exec Dir), LTC Allen West, Carol Swain, Candace Owens, Pastor Stephen Broden to name a few. Check out the trailer: uncletom.com
