Rethinking Race film: The Negro and the American Promise
Thursday, February 28, 11am-8pm
In the spring of 1963 Dr. Kenneth B. Clark, a professor of psychology at the City College of New York, interviewed Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Minister Malcolm X, and author James Baldwin, respectively, in order to examine and discuss the racial climate of America. The resulting program, The Negro and the American Promise, is a thought-provoking film depicting the varying perspectives of three passionate, powerful leaders in the Black community.
Visit the National Museum of Psychology during open hours, 11am-8pm to view The Negro and the American Promise, which will run continuously throughout the day. The film is an hour long. The film is FREE.
