Description
KTVU News report by Carlton Cordell on April 12, 1968 featuring Marlon Brando, Bobby Seale and Kathleen Cleaver giving speeches by Lake Merritt in Oakland, following the funeral of Black Panther Bobby Hutton. A somber Brando declares to crowds: ""It's up to the individual to do something to force the government to give the black man a decent place to live, a decent place to bring his children up in ... and I'm gonna start right now to inform white people about what they don't know. The Reverend said the white man can't cool it because he's never dug it. And I'm here to try to dig it because I myself as a white man have got a long way to go and a lot to learn."" Also includes views of Melvin Newton, George Mason Murray and William Lee Brent on the stage with Brando.
