DOCUMENTS THE STRUGGLE FOR EQUALITY UNDER THE LAW FROM THE MID 1960'S TO THE MID 1980'S. AT THE SAME TIME, THE SERIES EXPLORES AND ANALYZES THE CHANGING NATURE OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT. Series release date: 1990
- Program Description
Black activism is increasingly met with a sometimes violent and unethical response from local and federal law enforcement agencies. In Chicago, two Black Panther Party leaders are killed in a pre-dawn raid by police acting on information supplied by an FBI informant. In the wake of President Nixon's call to "law and order," stepped-up arrests push the already poor conditions at New York's Attica State Prison to the limit. A five-day inmate takeover calling the public's attention to the conditions leaves 43 men dead: four killed by inmates, 39 by police.
