Fear of a Black Republican 

When: Sat., Sept. 3, 4 p.m. 2011
The 2012 Democratic ticket is a foregone conclusion, so the Republican Party has the spotlight. As the candidates play to the base, the political spectrum ranges from conservative to conservativer. Yet while Herman Cain peaked early in the polls, his candidacy highlights a seeming paradox. According to a 2004 study, about 27 percent of African-Americans identify as being slightly to extremely conservative. Yet, according to the Pew Research Center, only 7 percent of African-Americans identify as Republican. A new documentary, Fear of a Black Republican, screens at 4 p.m. at the Screenland Crossroads (1656 Washington, 816-421-9700) as part of the Kansas City Urban Film Festival. A nonpartisan look at race and politics, the film includes interviews with candidates and policymakers from both sides of the aisle. Tickets are $10. For more information, see facebook.com/UFFKC.
