Program Description
Program focuses on the origin and work of the Community Fellows Program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Host Topper Carew interviews Frank Jones (Program Director of Community Fellows Program), Mel King (State Representative and Assistant Director of the Community Fellows Program), and fellows Pat Raynor (an Equal Employment Opportunity Officer), Chuck Turner (Director of the Circle Association), Johnny Tillman (Executive Director of the National Welfare Rights Organization), and Frieda Garcia (Community Fellow) about their projects, the influence of the program, and their feelings about being a fellow. Includes footage of a portion of one the Program's "seminar" meetings (in which Fredda Garcia presents her work on Puerto Rican and Dominican populations) and footage of Topper Carew talking about his involvement with the Community Fellows (Carew was a fellow prior to becoming producer of Say Brother). The Community Fellows Program provides a stipend, tuition, and research funds for a diverse population of individuals from the community so that they can partner with an academic institution to effect change. The program was founded by Mel King, who served as its Director until 1996.
