Description
1 hour program, produced by WNDT and initially distributed by NET in 1965. It was originally shot on videotape.
Who Does the Negro Think He is? consists of a panel discussion of eminent Negro and white psychiatrists, sociologists, and other observers of the Negro's role in civil rights movements. The panelists examine the Negro's view of himself, his aspirations and obligations to himself and society, the psychological sources of Negro violence and disorders such as the recent Los Angeles riots, and the implications of the current U.S. Labor Department report on the instability of Negro family life in northern urban cities. The panelists are: Dick Gregory, well-known Negro comedian and active leader in the civil rights struggle, who was in the Los Angeles riots; Bayard Rustin, prominent Negro civil rights leader who helped organize the "March on Washington" in the summer of 1963; Dr. Harold W. Jones, leading Negro psychiatrist who serves as a consultant for the County Department of Mental Health in Compton, California; and Charles E. Silberman, editorial writer of Fortune Magazine and author of the book Crisis in Black and White. The moderator of the discussion is Jim Fleming, noted news journalist and television commentator.
