The Nigger Factory
The Nigger Factory is a scornful statement on the way in which human beings are conditioned to think.
On the campus of Sutton University, Virginia, the students are trying to carry forth the message of reconstruction to a university resistant to change. The failure of the Sutton to embrace the changing attitudes of the Sixties has necessitated extreme action and the revolution is nigh.
