Making Contact - COINTELPRO 101 (Part 2)

COINTELPRO, the secret FBI project to infiltrate and disrupt domestic organizations thought to be “subversive.”, targeted many African American, Native American, and other movements for self-determination by people of color in the U.S.  Between 1956 and 1971, the FBI conducted more than 2,000 COINTELPRO operations.  Over the next two weeks, we’ll broadcast the documentary film “COINTELPRO 101.” Today we hear the second half of the film, produced by the Freedom Archives.

 

Special thanks to The Freedom Archives.
