It examines how the language has served to derogate the black man with such references as “a black mark.” -- From Program #4: The growth of a Louisiana cooperative, organized as a farming enterprise by Father McKnight, a black parish priest. The cooperative has now taken on a manufacturing function as well and provides candy to Barricini’s and other large chains. -- From Program #4: A choreographed exercise in karate by an expert who incorporates modern dance into this athletic ritual. -- From Program #6: The dilemma of the black policeman in a daily conflict between duty and race.

Also interviewed on the segment are two high-ranking black policemen, Deputy Inspector Arthur C. Hill of New York and Lt. Edward C. Henry of Los Angeles and a Los Angeles patrolman, Harrison Bailey. “Black Journal #13” is an NET production Executive producer: William Greaves Managing Editor-Producer: Tony Batten Hosts: Lou House and William Greaves
