This documentary establishes historical perspective on the measures which were taken by J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI. These measures aimed to discredit black political figures and forces of the late 1960′s and early 1970′s.

A secret program called the Counter Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO) was initiated to subvert the will of the people to avoid the rise “of a black Messiah”. The aim was to prevent a movement that would mobilize the African-American community into a meaningful political force.

the film uses declassified documents, interviews, rare footage and exhaustive research to investigate the government’s role in the assassinations of Malcolm X, Fred Hampton, and Martin Luther King Jr.
