Rough but fascinating documentary about Chicago politics in 1968

Very raw, rough documentary about the riots in Chicago at the 1968
Democratic convention, focusing on the unlikely alliance between the
Black Panthers and a group of poor southern whites now living in
Chicago calling themselves the 'Young Patriots' complete with
Boring at moments, incoherent at others, but overall a fascinating
capturing of a moment in history where there was the beginning of an
understanding, now seemingly lost, that the real issue in America isn't
race, but class.
A valuable reminder that the politics of the 60s were more complex than
the cliché versions we see portrayed in modern popular culture.
