Title:
Blast From the Past with Cleve Sellers
Description:
In this clip, "Blast From the Past" features an interview with Cleve Sellers, member of the Cornell University development staff. Sellers comments on black studies programs in white institutions and what constitutes a viable program for black students. Overall the program focuses on the culture of Australian aborigines. Host/interviewer Dighton Spooner speaks with Gulpilil and other Australians about music, ceremonies, instruments, costuming, and the requirements for the survival of Australia's aboriginal culture. Interviews touch upon offers from European companies to purchase tribal lands, Australia's attempts to restore its native culture, rules governing "mixed blood" in Australian government, the impact of African American leaders on Australia, the creative force behind aboriginal cultures, and European repression of native cultural tradition. Additional program segments include two mime performances by Halim Adbur Rashid (Fred Johnson), "Blast From the Past" (with an interview with Cleve Sellers, member of the Cornell University development staff), "Information" on college preparatory services, "Access" (on the services of the Council of Elders, Inc.), the "Community Calendar," and "Commentary" by Producer Marita Rivero.
