NAACP Shows ''Fahrenheit 9/11" For Free - NAACP makes clear it favors Kerry over Bush for president: "On Tuesday, leaders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People arranged for a surprise showing of the movie ''Fahrenheit 9/11,'' a scathing criticism of the presidency of Republican George W. Bush.

In introducing the movie, NAACP President Kweisi Mfume called it ''factual.'' And Chairman Julian Bond predicted that ''in the near future, a president of the United States is going to turn to Michael Moore and say, 'So you're the guy who stopped this war.''' Speakers then urged their audience to register voters.

''I went to fight a war I didn't believe in,'' a young soldier from California said into a microphone at the Pennsylvania Convention Center's ballroom. ''Get involved.''"
