        The Negro and the American Promise - Introduction

        Psychology professor at the City College of New York, Dr. Kenneth Clark introduces a segment featuring interviews with Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and James Baldwin. The segment made headlines in spring 1963. The program aired in a climate of racial conflict, just months after Alabama governor George Wallace's defiant support of "segregation forever," and before the March on Washington. Watch more in this video from American Experience: "The Negro and the American Promise."
