Program Description
Say Brother celebrates its tenth anniversary with a look at Boston and its African American community over the past decade -- particularly changes in politics, social service agencies, employment rates, the educational system, and minority programming. Program features interviews with David O. Ives (President of WGBH) and Elma Lewis (Director of the National Center of Afro-American Artists) on why Say Brother was created, State Representative Mel King and Sarah-Ann Shaw, WBZ-TV reporter and former Anti-Poverty Program Coordinator, on changes in African American employment, Lloyd King (Executive Director of the Roxbury Action Program) on changes in housing, John O'Bryant (of the Boston School Committee) on changes resulting from Boston's desegregation plan, and Russell Tillman (former Say Brother staffer from 1968 to 1973) on why the show was shut down in 1970 (about program 63, "New Bedford"). Program dedicated to Ray Richardson (former Say Brother producer) and Melnea Cass (a Roxbury community advocate). Includes excerpts of previously aired programs.
