All Power to the People is a 1996 documentary by Lee Lew-Lee about American race relations and the 1960s Civil Rights Movement and covers slavery, civil-rights activists, assassinations and methods used to divide and destroy key figures. It moves beyond that era into covering Ronald Reagan-era events, privacy threats from new technologies, and the failure of the War on Drugs. It is composed primarily of archival footage and interviews. Interviewees include ex-Central Intelligence Agency officer Philip Agee, Life magazine journalist/filmmaker Gordon Parks, decorated FBI Special Agent M. Wesley Swearingen, and various 1960s political radicals such as Malcolm X and Martin Luther King. It covers both the virtues and faults of these civil rights leaders and activists.[1]

Broadcast in 24 countries on 12 networks in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia & Australia between 1997-2000.
