Abstract:

"Power!" shows how Blacks looked for new ways to take control of their communities. This program explores the political path to power for Carl Stokes, the nation's first Black mayor of a major city. It also describes the founding of the Black Panther Party in Oakland, Calif., and the struggle of Black and Hispanic parents in Brooklyn, N.Y., to improve their children's education through community control of the schools.

"The promised land" shows how Martin Luther King,in the final year of his life, began to organize a Poor People's Campaign, a march of the poor to Washington, D.C., where they would erect Resurrection City to embarrass and motivate a reluctant government. On April 4, 1968, King was assassinated. Soon after its construction, Resurrection City was shut down, marking the end of a chapter of the civil rights movement.
