Maryland Public Television presents The First Rainbow Coalition by Ray Santisteban. In 1969, the Chicago Black Panther Party began to form a multi-ethnic coalition with the Young Lords Organization and the Young Patriots. Banding together in one of the most segregated cities in post-war America, the Rainbow Coalition changed the face of 1960s Chicago politics and created an organizing model for future activists and politicians.
Presented as part of Maryland Public Television's Indie Lens Pop-Up series.
