Program Description
Program focuses on three community organizations working to improve the quality of African American life in Boston. Host Topper Carew conducts a discussion with Dinizulu Ceitou (member of the African Liberation Day Support Committee, a committee that not only focuses on the National African Liberation Day demonstration, but also works to organize local demonstrations and community forums), Leo Fletcher (member of the United Community Construction Workers, organized in 1968 to combat racism in the construction community and open the job market for African American men and women in construction), and Lennie Durant (member of Coalition for a Clean Community, organized to ensure that the quality of city services - garbage removal, street cleaning, street repair, etc. - in African American communities equals that of white communities). Carew discusses with each the origins of their organizations, their function in the community and the goals each group has for itself, its members, and the communities they serve. Carew touches upon their role in the overall struggle of African Americans for equity and liberation.
