Description
An audio mosaic of people and sounds which tells the events of the integration struggles of the summer of 1963 in Los Angeles. It represents the four areas of concern as they are met locally by Negro leaders: housing, education, employment and police practices. The sources of the material run the full range of diversity from narrations of arrests, integration group meetings, rallies, press conferences and personal interviews. Reel 1 includes audio of James Baldwin speaking in Los Angeles about Birmingham, excerpts from coverage of the Black Muslims trial, and a sit-in protest by CORE and UCRC of developer Don Wilson's offices in Torrance. Reel 2 includes actuality of a protest of the Los Angeles Board of Education, UCRC spokespeople discussing the entertainment industry, the 1963 March on Washington, and a discussion of Black separatism. Written and produced by Leonard Brown and Jim Osborn. Narrated by Fred Haines.
