Say Brother; Black History Week; Owusu Sadaukai urges boycott of goods from African Countries

Part of Say Brother.

03/07/1973

In this clip Owusu Sadaukai, National Chairman of the African Liberation Committee in the early 1970s, discusses ways African Americans can boycott goods such as Gulf Oil and Portuguese sardines from African Countries as a way of aiding the liberation struggles in Africa. Overall the program focuses on three Black leaders dedicated to the intellectual, spiritual and physical liberation of Blacks not only in America, but in African countries. The program seeks to define, in their own words, the work of Malcolm X (minister for the Nation of Islam in the 1950's) through film footage, and Stokely Carmichael (consistent voice of Black power and black nationalism in the 1960s) and Owusu Sadaukai (National Chairman of the African Liberation Committee in the early 1970s) through Say Brother interview and film footage. Produced by John Slade. Directed by Russell Tillman.
