Please join KPFA Radio at the historic Grand Lake Theater on Wednesday, October 19th at 7:00pm when we welcome iconoclastic media personality Greg Palast for a very special screening of his brand new film, Vigilante: Georgia’s Vote Suppression Hitman. This live, in-person event will be hosted by KPFA’s Dennis Bernstein.
Greg Palast and his investigations team bust the most brazen, racist attack on voting rights yet — engineered by Georgia’s Brian Kemp to ensure victory in his rematch with Stacey Abrams. You’ll meet Kemp’s army of vigilante vote challengers. One dresses up like Old-West vigilante Doc Holliday with loaded six-gun, one of a posse of right-wing operatives who have challenged over a quarter million voters.
And there’s the hidden story of Brian Kemp, scion of the family that was the first to bring captive Africans to Georgia.
It’s not a story of Democrat versus Republican, but history versus smothered truth.
Greg Palast and his crew are working with Black Voters Matter Fund, NAACP Georgia and other frontline groups to fight the assault on voting rights.
Executive Producers: Martin Sheen, George DiCaprio & Stephen Nemeth
Producer: Academy Award Winner Maria Florio
