Part II of a three part, un-narrated documentary film produced by the Film Group, Inc. Chicago, about events during and after the August 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago. Includes interviews with members of the African American and Appalachian communities, who discuss issues of police brutality, housing discrimination and racism in Chicago. Also features a meeting of the Young Patriots Organization (with leader Bill 'Preacherman' Fesperman), in which a member of the Black Panther Party (Bobby Lee) explains the common goal of radical social change they all seek: "We're talking about revolution ... we're talking about war ... urban, guerilla war." The Young Patriots Organization and the Black Panther Party went on to form the Rainbow Coalition, together with the Young Lords Organization. Part II contains harsh language.
