In October 1983 the largest military power in the world, the United States, invaded one of the smallest countries on the planet, the tiny Caribbean island of Grenada--a country with a population smaller than Dayton, Ohio, and a military smaller than the New York City Police Department. The film celebrates women crucial to the Jewel movement, and examines why the US was determined to crush this Black Power Revolution.
"A fascinating and under-reported chapter in the never-ending struggle for justice on behalf of black men and women worldwide, as well as a scalding appraisal of Reagan-era racial attitudes at home and abroad.”. Justin Chang - LA TIMES
