An interview with the activist–filmmaker, Charles Bennett Brack, permits a grounded discussion of the anthropological and sociological fundamentals of gender ideology as they are located in the larger context and contest of Newark, New Jersey's Black political machine in the early 21st century. In the video accompanying this essay, Brack interrogates the gendered politics of Black Power through his documentation of the story of the murder of a young lesbian, Sakia Gunn, a 15-year-old Black girl.
