Program Description
Producer Ray Richardson celebrates the one-year anniversary of Say Brother by talking about the goals and objectives the Say Brother production staff and WGBH have developed. The program offers a rich array of segments: musical performances by The Parliaments and Abdalah, a modern dance performance by Joanne Robinson, interviews with Ruby Dee and playwright/actress Alice Childress, commentary by Henry Hampton, and "man on the street" interviews conducted by Sarah-Ann Shaw. Richardson emphasizes that the African American community is still not fully represented: Say Brother staff represents 5 out of 200 WGBH staff members and 2 of 70 programming hours per week; Hampton emphasizes the limits of white sponsored programs, such as Julia (sponsored by CBS and General Foods) and similar programs that perpetuate myths about the African American community.
