Vermont resident and filmmaker Ed Pincus delivers a cinema verité account of the attempt to organize a black community in the Deep South in 1965 during the heyday of the Civil Rights Movement. A black leader has been car bombed and a struggle ensues in the black community for control. A group of black men organize a chapter of the Deacons for Defense — a secret armed self defense group. The community splits between more conservative and activist elements.
