About Vigilante: Georgia’s Vote Suppression Hitman:
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 who dresses up like Old-West vigilante Doc Holliday and is fully armed.
Weird and funny — but no joke. “Doc Holliday,” has challenged the right to vote of 4,000 Georgians of color, targeting Black soldiers. He’s also a Republican Party chairman in Georgia. The secretive vigilante posse has targeted hundreds of thousands of Georgians.
And you’ll meet “Doc’s” voter targets and the heroes of the fight in Georgia for rights we assumed had been won decades ago. Featuring LaTosha Brown, co-founder of Black Voters Matter… and a host of Confederate “reenactors” waiting for next insurrection, the film busts open the secret source of Brian Kemp’s ancestral wealth and power: slavery.
Kemp has kept his history of privilege and political fixes well hidden — including the long history of exploitation by his family aimed at both enchained Blacks and politically helpless poor whites.
It’s not a story of Democrat versus Republican, but a story of Right versus Wrong, history versus smothered truth.
A film from Academy Award winning producer Maria Florio and Executive Producer Martin Sheen.
