Conversation With James Baldwin, A

  • Cite

Summary
Dr. Kenneth Clark interviews author James Baldwin shortly after Baldwin's now famous 1963 meeting with (then) United States Attorney General Robert Kennedy regarding the state of Civil Rights in this country. This program contains the same Baldwin interview that is found in the program “Negro And The American Promise”. The difference between the two is that this interview is presented as a standalone program, produced by Henry Morgenthau, with introductory and closing comments by Morgenthau; whereas the American Promise program incorporates the Baldwin interview (same run time), along with others, into a longer program.
