In order to improve his standing with Black voters, a White Senator starts
a campaign for the CIA to recruit Black agents. However, all are graded on
a curve and doomed to fail, save for a soft-spoken veteran named Dan
Freeman. After grueling training in guerrilla warfare, clandestine
operations and unarmed combat, he is assigned a meager job as the CIA's
token Black employee. After five years of racist and stereotyped treatment
by his superiors, he quietly resigns to return to his native Chicago to
work for a social services agency...by day. By night, he trains a street
gang to be the vanguard in an upcoming revolution, using all that the CIA
has taught him...
