Description
Episode Description
Last July 21, the first Pan-African Cultural Festival opened in Algiers, hosted by the government of Algeria and sponsored by the 41-member Organization of African Unity. Some 4,000 Africans took part in 12 days of performances and discussions and listened to speakers. Among the speakers' key themes were unity among African states and common aspects of the cultural heritage of Arabs and black Africans. This episode offers a look at the festival and includes interviews with two guests who attended, Eldridge Cleaver, minister of information of the Black Panthers and Stokely Carmichael, resigned recently as prime minister of the Black Panthers and a former director of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee. Carmichael is interviewed by playwright Ed Bullins, Cleaver by a group of Algerian students. Each interview occupies about 10 minutes. Their content will be made available as soon as possible. The remainder of the episode concentrates on discussions and performers, including Tunisian, Moroccan, and Senegalese dancers, singers, and drummers who appeared during the festival and took part in a two-hour parade that wound through the streets of Algiers to mark the opening of the festival. Black Journal is a production of National Educational Television. (Description adapted from documents in the NET Microfiche)
Series Description
Black Journal began as a monthly series produced for, about, and - to a large extent - by black Americans, which used the magazine format to report on relevant issues to black Americans. Starting with the October 5, 1971 broadcast, the show switched to a half-hour weekly format that focused on one issue per week, with a brief segment on black news called "Grapevine." Beginning in 1973, the series changed back into a hour long show and experimented with various formats, including a call-in portion. From its initial broadcast on June 12, 1968 through November 7, 1972, Black Journal was produced under the National Educational Television name. Starting on November 14, 1972, the series was produced solely by WNET/13. Only the episodes produced under the NET name are included in the NET Collection. For the first part of Black Journal, episodes are numbered sequential spanning broadcast seasons. After the 1971-72 season, which ended with episode #68, the series started using season specific episode numbers, beginning with #301. The 1972-73 season spans #301 - 332, and then the 1973-74 season starts with #401. This new numbering pattern continues through the end of the series.
