Tony Brown introduces William Greaves, who co-hosted and produced what was the "Black Journal" and is now "Tony Brown's Journal." Greaves discusses the start of the series, giving African Americans a voice on television, and becoming the executive producer.
Greaves commits to full-time filmmaking in 1970 and Brown becomes the executive producer of Black Journal. Greaves chooses subject matter that will expand consciousness, lend itself to artistic treatment, and is capable of being financed.
Greaves discusses his curiosity about Bunche's life. Bunche was born in 1903 and grew-up in a largely white community in Detroit. The family moved to Los Angeles, Bunche excelled in education, established the political science department at Howard University, and became a consultant for the U.S. government during WWII.
While in the State Department, Bunche helped draft the United Nations Charter. He was requisitioned to the U.N.; Dag Hammarskjöld appointed Bunche in 1954. Brown reflects on the black community. Bunche fostered decolonization of the world.
