American Revolution II, a FilmGroup documentary by filmmakers Howard Alk and Mike Gray, charts their journey to a deeper understanding of race relations and the political reality outside of the 1968 student demonstrations at the chaotic Democratic Convention in Chicago. They follow Black Panther Bobby Lee as he attempts to find common cause with the poor Appalachian white community living in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood. The seemingly disparate groups find shared social and political objectives that overcome racial differences – police violence, poverty, lack of employment, and poor living conditions. This potential for a cross-racial and interethnic political movement is the movie’s beautiful but unrealized dream. Published in 3 parts.
