Summary:

This program is a look through the eyes of migrant families at Chicago's turbulent events in the late 1960s and early 1970s. President Johnson's Great Society plan was supposed to alleviate black poverty. But the plan had only boosted the growth of black ghettos. Black citizens cried out against paternalistic city politics and racially exclusionary laws.
