Synopsis

A U.S. Senate investigation is the unlikely source material for this docudrama, which weaves together news coverage and lengthy reenactments of attacks on labor organizing during the Great Depression. The stories include that of a stool pigeon spying on a union, a black sharecropper and a white sharecropper murdered after seeking a raise and a farmer assaulted for speaking up at a public meeting. Paul Robeson narrates and sings.
