It represents the four areas of concern as they are met locally by Negro leaders: housing, education, employment and police practices.

Reel 1 includes audio of James Baldwin speaking in Los Angeles about Birmingham, excerpts from coverage of the Black Muslims trial, and a sit-in protest by CORE and UCRC of developer Don Wilson's offices in Torrance. Reel 2 includes actuality of a protest of the Los Angeles Board of Education, UCRC spokespeople discussing the entertainment industry, the 1963 March on Washington, and a discussion of Black separatism.
