Area filmmaker Emiel Cleaver debuts his documentary film Freedom Is Now about Freedom, Inc., Kansas City’s pioneering African-American political organization.

Not only did Freedom, Inc. give many blacks their first taste of politics, for decades it tirelessly fought for self determination for African Americans frustrated with racism and political irrelevancy.
