Common Enemies

25 min - Libya, USA Nick Guroff, Tonantzin De Aztlan

The story of a group of Black Muslims, American Indians, and Chicano radicals who, in the mid-1980s, met each other, then met again in Muammar Qaddafis Libya. They went to a series of meetings with one of Americas principal enemies, intending to meet a revolutionary and find common cause. What actually happened in those meetings, and the pandemonium that ensued, landed some participants in prison and helped catapult tensions between the U.S. and Libya to an all-time high.
