Abstract:

Incorporating interviews with Dr. Cornel West, Eldridge Cleaver, Angela Davis, and other notable figures, this episode of Frontline features distinguished Harvard professor Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr., in a study of divisions within the African-American community. Shedding light on factors that have contributed to severe economic and cultural fissures, the program evokes a disturbing summation: while many black Americans reaped the rewards of the civil rights movement, this cultural document-made thirty years after the death of Martin Luther King, Jr.-would be incomplete without focusing on the plight of an expanding black underclass.
