In a one-man act sometimes accompanied by music, Gil Scott-Heron sings the blues about apartheid, the treatment of illegal aliens, and the poor neighborhoods that contrast with the "official" Washington, D.C. Touches such as a B-movie starring Ronald Ray Gun and a visit to a wax museum in which some Americans of historical note are melted down by Scott-Heron's running commentary, add variety to the documentary format. Video includes the bonus song "Is That Jazz?".
