It features redacted files from the FBI of their surveillance of King and his family, images from protests against white supremacy and poverty in Memphis, where my father is from, and it mixes academic texts by Stuart Hall and musical interludes by Sweet Honey and the Rock about blackness, activism and staying on the battlefield.
