Program Description

Program serves as the conclusion to Program 805, "Affirmative Action," and features the second half of Say Brother's "Open Platform" debate on affirmative action and reverse discrimination. Moderated by Melvin Moore, debaters James Kelly (spokesperson from the South Boston Information Center) and Sheila Martin (a community advocate for the Massachusetts Social and Economic Opportunity Council) respond to the questions of journalists John Robinson (The Boston Globe) and William Hoar (the American Opinion Magazine), and discuss the potential impact of the yet-undecided case, Regents of the University of California v. Bakke, as well as their opinions regarding affirmative ation programs. Additional segments include: an Eduardo Diaz interview with Allan Crite, a well known Boston artist who works in the South End (to discuss his theory on the "multiethnicity" of all people and his book "Towards a Rediscovery of the Cultural Heritage of the United States"); the "Third World Connection" (which deals with the interrelationship of African American and Native American peoples); a poetry reading by Boston-based poet Sam Stamper; and the "Community Calendar."
