Waterstar Posted July 31, 2012 Report Share Posted July 31, 2012 PBS Special Forum "The Issue is Race" Panelists include: Alan Keyes (then black republican candidate for Senate), Richard Nathan (then director of Rockefeller Institute/researcher), Sister Souljah (then raptivist/PoliSci major), Jonathan Kozol (educator and author) Anna Deavere Smith (playwright), Mayor Sharon Pratt Kelly (then mayor of Washington) , Dhoruba bin Wasad (former political prisoner/wrongly imprisoned Black Panther, activist) Tony Brown (then journalist/author), Cornel West (then director of African American Studies at Princeton), and Sylvester Monroe (then of Time Magazine). This was in 1992. One of the main questions then was "What have we overcome?" It is now 2012. What have we "overcome" since then? Really, this show sums up so much of what we discuss here. It reflects the different positions that we see here from different sides. Trust me, Troy, I've seen this one and you're going to want to que this one up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZKM-6wg2Z8 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YJIw1LFzjc&feature=relmfu http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGpJ-yQKZss&feature=relmfu 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
