This film is an experimental manipulation of documentary images (particularly for its color and animation) illustrating African-American oppression and resistance. Including excerpts from a 1965 TV show in which actress Ruby Dee incarnates Fannie Moore, born in 1849 in South Carolina, she testifies to her life as a slave in 1937 as part of the Federal Writers' Slave Narrative Project.
