[Original caption] Produced by a black media group with assistance from Portable Channel, this program illustrates the use of video as a cultural exchange. In its look at two local black organizations, it presents a casual and revealing perspective that would be difficult if not impossible for a non-black outsider to perceive and document. “Monroe County Community Organizers” features scenes from the People’s Club, People’s Liquor Store, and Youth Federation run by the non-profit corporation to provide economic stability for its service programs in the poor community; the Haiti Afro-American Cultural Center features art and music.
First broadcast on WXXI-TV, Rochester, New York in October 1973
