An incredible, insightful, incendiary document of a moment, a feeling and a time and place. Cinema Vérité, Direct Cinema, call it by any name: A call to action that still resonates, especially in our particular trying times (extra comedy points for anyone who gets this silly reference). All the heavy hitters show up, from Amiri Baraka to Isaac Hayes to Betty Shabazz. Harry Belafonte, Coretta Scott King, Queen Mother Moore, Richard Roundtree are here too – underseen and undersung, a hidden gem for the longest time that is truly a unique spotlight on action and words forever relevant.
