Written on Meet Mark Crutcher, the Man Behind 'Maafa 21':

It's also interesting that the entirety of this article is geared towards who Mark Crutcher is. Personally, I'd rather read an honest analysis of the film's content.

Written on Meet Mark Crutcher, the Man Behind 'Maafa 21':

Interesting that Katz tries to suggest that he and the Margaret Sanger Papers Project are the sole guardians of Sanger's writings and that anyone who wants access to them must request such from his organization:
----
“We have control of every document, in the sense that we know what’s in it, where it is, how many copies there are and what the context was that Sanger ever wrote,” Katz says. “He’s never been in touch with me that I know of. So I don’t know what research he might have done that would have given him these qualifications. I mean, every other major scholar that has written about Sanger has been in touch with me or one of her biographers or one of the archives, so I know what’s out there and who’s working on it.”
------
Since he has now recollection of Crutcher contacting him for the records, then he must be a fraud who did no research to produce the film, right?

WRONG. Perhaps someone should inform Katz that his organization has made all of Sanger's writings available online in a fully searchable format:

http://www.nyu.edu/projects/sanger/we...

...or was Katz only referring to her private writings? Either way, virtually all of the Sanger quotes used int he film were straight from her public writings, all of which are fully available online from Katz's own organization.

Nice try.
