The FBI's War on Black America (FULL DOCUMENTARY)

On the 20th anniversary of its original release, The FBI's War on Black America is being made available on DVD for the first time. Co-produced/Co-directed by Deb Ellis and Denis Meuller (directors of Howard Zinn: You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train), The FBI's War on Black America looks at a dark period in our country's history. The film is a documentary exploration of the lives and deaths of people targeted by the US government's COINTELPRO program, an FBI launched program aimed against organized efforts by African-Americans to gain rights guaranteed by our constitution. Includes both archival footage and contemporary interviews with people involved in the movement.

The FBI's War on Black America offers a thought provoking look at a government-sanctioned conspiracy, the FBI's counter intelligence program known as Cointelpro. This documentary establishes historical perspective on the measures initiated by J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI which aimed to discredit black political figures and forces of the late 1960's and early 1970's.

"History tells us that whoever is in the White House, the secret arms of government are always at work, carrying on their deadly practices of surveillance and worse. The film, 'FBI's War on Black America' by Denis Mueller and Deb Ellis is therefore important as a warning and as a call for all of us to be watchful in defending our freedoms..."
- Howard Zinn
