An intimate portrayal of Black youth organizing on the west side of Chicago, this documentary follows a group of fifth graders from Village Leadership Academy as they embark on a campaign to rename Stephen A. Douglas Park after freedom fighters Anna Murray and Frederick Douglass. Over the course of the three-year grassroots campaign the students tackle bureaucratic Chicago Park District systems, underestimations of their capacity to make real change, as well as a Covid-19 pandemic and global uprising.
