        Take This Hammer | American Masters

        In this video segment from Take this Hammer, a 1963 film from THIRTEEN’s archive, activist and author James Baldwin seeks to raise morale among a group of African American adolescents in San Francisco in the early 1960s. Baldwin predicts that the United States will transform and that there will be a black president one day. He explains that black Americans can do anything anyone else can do and if they don’t believe this, they are on the same side as those who claim African Americans are inferior.
