KQED News report from August 29th 1973 featuring a press conference with Lehman Brightman, in which he announces that a charge of employment discrimination towards Native Americans is being filed against the Justice Department and other Federal agencies. He explains: "This twelve page complaint is unprecedented in the fact that it's a first in the nation to be filed with the newly created Office of Indian Rights, which is within the Justice Department." Also includes scenes of other speakers discussing this issue, one of whom points out that the Justice Department has indicted more Native Americans than they have hired, over the past three years.
