- For Freedom Now
- Program Description
Radio broadcast of television program Perspectives: For Freedom Now, #38, first aired 7/22/1963. From press release of the day: “Five leading Negro spokesmen for integration will discuss problems of rivalry between their leadership groups. Moderated by Dr. Kenneth Clark, Professor of Psychology at City College, the program features James Farmer, National Director of CORE; James Forman, Executive Secretary of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Comittee; Reverend Martin Luther King, President of the Southern Christian Leadership Council; Roy Wilkins, Executive Secretary of the NAACP; and Whitney Young, jr., Executive Secretary of the National Urban League.”
Often cited as the sequel to The Negro and The American Promise, For Freedom Now came about, in part, because of the reaction many Civil Rights leaders had to the The American Promise program.
