The Film


"Like many of our nation’s cities,

we find Cleveland a teeming cauldron of hostility.

The citizens of the Negro community

reflect the alienation of the total community,

which has constantly ignored their cries for justice

and opportunity and responded to their joblessness,

poor housing, and economic exploitation

with crude methods of police repression

rather than compassion

and creative programming." 


—Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Cleveland, Ohio, May 16, 1967
