Discusses the evolving use, and, at times, acceptance of, violence within the civil rights struggles of the 1960s. It contrasts the divergent attitudes of black leaders Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, and the legacy of their opposing views. Employing rare, dramatic footage that showcases the efforts of such individuals as, among others, Stokely Carmichael, H. Rap Brown, Floyd McKissick and Father Groppi, the film attempts to highlight the arc of the debate over the use of violence, and the issues of judgement and acceptance that continue to shadow the civil rights movement to this very day. Intended as the pilot episode of a six part series entitled BLACK POWER.
