This week we continue with Black August and talk with Herb Boyd, journalist, educator, author, and activist. His articles appear regularly in the New York Amsterdam News. He teaches black studies at the City College of New York and the College of New Rochelle.

We also speak with Douglas Daniels, Professor in the Department of Black Studies and in the Department of History. He received his BA in Political Science from the University of Chicago and an M.A. and Ph. D. in History from the University of California, Berkeley.
