The filmmakers announced last night that Congresswoman
Cynthia McKinney is making a rare trip here to SF to
be on hand for the screening of the film "American
Blackout" which shows the problems she had when she
stepped forward and asked critical questions of the
Bush Administration about 9/11 a few months after 9/11
and ended up being defeated by another black
democratic candidate in which the Republicans
persuaded white Republicans to "crossover" and vote
for Cynthia's democratic challenger.

As you know, she regained her seat back in Nov 2004.

Here is the synopsis of "American Blackout" which
screens 4:15PM at the Kabuki theatre:

American Blackout 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.

The film features interviews with: US Congressional
Representatives, John Lewis, Cynthia McKinney, John
Conyers, Bernie Sanders, and Stephanie Tubbs-Jones;
former US Civil Rights Commissioner & Dean of UC
Berkeley's School of Law.
