Title:
Joseph Nelson reminsices about Josephine Baker
Description:
In this clip Joseph Nelson, a Boston historian, talks about his life and some of the people he has met over the years, including the singer Josephine Baker. Overall program 101, the first in the Say Brother National series of programs, focuses on the African American elderly. Using excerpts from Jacquelyne J. Jackson's and Frank Cantor's short film Old, Black and Alive and Say Brother segments, the program seeks to illustrate the wisdom, vitality, and struggles that define America's seniors. Segments include a narrated "Information" segment on upcoming amendments to the Older Americans Act of 1975, a "Spotlight" segment with musician/actor Sherman "Scatman" Crothers, an interview with local historian Joseph Nelson, "Commentary" by Georgia State Representative Andrew Young, the "Historical Minute" with Georgia State Representative Julian Bond, "Bookbeat," and segment interludes with Gerald Durley, Louis Wilson (of the musical group Mandrill), and musician Grover Washington. Produced by Marita Rivero. Directed by Conrad White.
