Previewing in Black History Month, The Czar of Black Hollywood, is a new documentary by Producer Bayer L. Mack.  It chronicles the life and times of Oscar Micheaux, the first African-American independent feature-length filmmaker and studio boss.

Frances says, "As a writer/producer, I am very excited to be part of this project, working with Producer Bayer L. Mack and fellow Executive Producer Hal Croasmun who is also president of ScreenwritingU.com.   We are committed to helping bring his inspiring film to a wide audience."

This compelling new documentary about Oscar Micheaux,
The Czar of Black Hollywood, displays his independent American spirit and remarkable early twentieth-century success as the first major African-American filmmaker.

Micheaux's career, as a self-made movie producer and publisher, spanned from his birth in 1884 to his death in 1951 at age 67 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Mama’s Black Baby Boy is an 8-minute preview of this feature-length film.  It portrays Micheaux’s youth, including his arrival in Chicago’s black metropolis of the early 1900s and life-changing stint as a historic Pullman Porter on major railroads.

Bayer L. Mack, writer and record executive of Block Starz Music, conceived of and produced this inspiring film about Micheaux, using Library of Congress archived footage, photos, illustrations and vintage music.

A first full episode of the six-part series,
The Czar of Black Hollywood, premieres on March 31, 2014.

Students at historically black college complain Obamacare has left them uninsured PDF  | Print |  E-mail
Many students told Campus Reform that the now cancelled plans, which provided coverage for just $50 per semester, were the only insurance they could afford.  

"We don't have that money," said another. "We can barely afford books."

Several students said that they felt they had been let down.

"It's stupid and it's Obama's fault," one said. "You haven't done anything, Obama, and I'm disappointed in you."

"What it was hyped up to be, was that it was supposed to solve a lot of problems and help a lot of people, and its not really doing that," said another.

Many students had no idea the plans had been canceled, which was announced only in an email to their school addresses.

In a statement to Campus Reform, Bowie State said it was confident that Obamacare would fill the void left by the canceled plans.

"Most students are now able to be covered under their parent’s health plans up to age 26 at no additional cost and new affordable coverage is becoming available through the Maryland State Insurance Exchange System," it read.

Campus Reform conducted the interviews with student Eugene Craig III, who first wrote about canceled plans in an article in the school's alternative newspaper, The Bulldog Collegian.

PROMINENT BLACK MORMONS PDF  | Print |  E-mail

By Frances Rice

Democrats consistently push the false narrative that Mormons are racist, while ignoring the existence of black Mormons.  Then, hypocritically, Democrats demean black Mormons who step into the spotlight.  Witness how Democrats trashed Mia Love, the mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, and the Republican Party nominee for the United States House of Representatives in Utah's 4th congressional district.  An article that describes the despicable treatment of Mayor Love is “Hate-Filled Screeds Appear on Mia Love’s Wikipedia Page” by Patrick Hobin.

Another article is “Sick: Wikipedia entry calls Mia Love ‘dirty, worthless whore’ and ‘House Nigger’”

 
DEBATE DEBACLE – SYMBOL OF OBAMA'S FAILED PRESIDENCY PDF  | Print |  E-mail

By Frances Rice

Being a genius is not required to conclude that President Barack Obama’s debate performance was an utter disaster.  Americans witnessed on full display the weak president who produced the worst economic recovery in our nation’s history.

The article “Why the Country Is Unhappy Under Obama” by Mort Zuckerman provides the gory details about Obama’s failed presidency, including the heart-breaking fact that the real unemployment rate is a stunning 15 percent, based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics U-6 measurement, which includes people working part-time.

As the old saying goes, one picture is worth a thousand words.  The cartoon on the cover of the upcoming October 15th issue of The New Yorker magazine says it all, depicting Gov. Mitt Romney debating an empty chair.


Clint Eastwood was right.
