From Lincoln to Bush–and Potentially Romney: How the Republican Party Lost the African American Vote

“Does the Republican Party really want more African Americans?” That’s what filmmaker Kevin J. Williams asked before setting out on a non-partisan journey to find out why there are so few black Republicans.

Williams and wife and producer Tamara Williams tackled this question and what it means for the future of the two-party political system in the new documentary, “Fear of a Black Republican.”

Host Jamila Bey spoke with Kevin and Tamara to discuss what they sought to reveal in the film and the troubles and triumphs faced in the production.
