Trailer for the documentary A Day Late in Oakland.

On the morning of August 2, 2007, a man wearing a ski mask and carrying a shotgun walked up to a local reporter named Chauncey Bailey and shot him three times. It happened in the United States, where a journalist hasn't been murdered for his work since 1993. The next day, 200 police rushed the headquarters of Your Black Muslim Bakery, a business that was long seen as a bastion of black empowerment in Oakland, California. Political and civic leaders embraced the bakery throughout its nearly 40-year history, despite its troubling and hidden legacy of violence and abuse.

Mixing interviews with archival footage, photographs, news clippings, and public documents, A Day Late in Oakland follows Bailey’s life and the evolution of the bakery, from their common roots to their troubling intersection.
