Description: TV SHOW, BLACK JOURNAL, WITH HOST LOU HOUSE, COVERAGE OF ISSUES CONCERNING BLACK AUDIENCE Initial Broadcast Date: December 12, 1972 30 minutes -- Color “Black Journal” will present an in-depth study of The Congress of African People, an organization devoted to creating a national movement for the self-determination of black people. The program will focus on the events of the second annual Congress of the African People’s international meeting. Imamu Baraka, playwright and black leader, chaired the conference which was held in San Diego, California. The philosophy of the Congress of African People can be traced to 1900, when Henry Sylvester Williams of Trinidad, the father of Pan Africanism, gathered a group of thirty delegates in London to protest the aggression of white colonizes in Africa. Today the Congress has non-governmental status at the United Nations and is the only non-African group to hold an observer seat at the organization of African Unity (a federation of 41 independent African nations). At the San Diego convention, workshops were held in the areas of politics, communications, social and community organizations, law and justice, economics and education. “Black Journal” is a production of the national programming division of WNET/13.
