Let's use this part of the Cultural Production Wiki to discuss new ideas about the nature of cultural production, representation, and reception.

American Blackout

Whatever you think you know about our election systems or Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, this film will make you question further why the news media fails to accurately inform the public?

American Blackout chronicles the recurring patterns of voter disenfranchisement from Florida 2000 to Ohio 2004 while following the story of Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. Mckinney not only took an active role investigating these election debacles, but has found herself in the middle of her own after publicly questioning the Bush Administration about the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

A wonderful opportunity to buy some stunning photographs while helping the children in the RWAZA Orphanage of Rwanda. The orphanage is also in need of other items if you are not inclined to buy a photo.
A bit about the orphanage ... courtesy of Akim, a Rwandan native who works with the Thousand Hills Expeditions:
"The orphanage was founded by some Catholic sisters just after the 1994 genocide. Due to the severity of the tragedy, it left many orphans, widows and victims of HIV (women) in an "open wind blow"! This was horrible to see and to understand. The sisters never closed their arms. They did the most that they could do, and tried to collect kids from everywhere."
