Clarke, John H.
African Liberation Day Committee (national)
Program focuses on the impact of Malcolm X on African American political and intellectual leadership in the United States. Host Topper Carew speaks with Dr. John H. Clarke (historian and Cornell University professor), Owusu Sadaukai (National Chairman of the African Liberation Day Committee), and Bobby Seale (cofounder of the Black Panthers) about the impact of Malcolm X's work on their personal ideologies, the opinions of African Americans, and the struggle for Black rights in the United States. Interviews are separated by segments of archival news footage featuring Malcolm X discussing his political philosophies (program contains a particularly strong segment from the speech he delivered to the students of Selma, Alabama a few weeks before his assassination in 1965).
