Changing America isn’t easy. Indeed, just the thought of taking over seems damn near impossible. But taking over can be more than just a dream. Taking over is actually the opportunity of every generation.

To paraphrase Franz Fanon: “Each generation must, out of relative obscurity, discover its mission, fulfill it, or betray it.”

Without revealing our true history, America attempts to keep us looking at current conditions ass-backwards. Once we wake up from system-induced ignorance, over and over we find out that we really don’t know what happened: to us, to our parents, to generations that preceded us. We believe we know but most of our beliefs are actually false knowledge–stories manufactured to keep us ignorant.

Here we consider one particular period: the twelve hour take over of a hospital. New York City 1970. The Young Lords.

It may sound like Hollywood but this a real story of real people and the daring deeds they chose to undertake.

Look, listen, and learn!
