Battle for the Hearts and Minds depicts a battle of words between historical black legends W.E.B. DuBois and Marcus Garvey. Relating elements of their documented 1920s era conflict to later century hip-hop and hip-hop beef, the ongoing fight for social justice, and black disunity in general, the event is presented as a cross between a heavy weight fight and a rap battle.
