The Black American Dream
This month will see the fifth anniversary of the day Stokely Carmichael first shouted 'Black Power' and changed the whole direction of the black revolt.
Until then Martin Luther King and non-violence were the undisputed pace-setters. But almost with one stroke Carmichael summed up the whole frustration of black Americans, especially the young, and swept it on to a new course. Nowadays Black Power appears to mean all things to all men. The revolutionary Panther, the African-based Carmichael, the non-violent Jesse Jackson ... each has his own version of Black Power.
A Man Alive film team and reporter Jonathan Power went to the United States.
The remarkable men who lead the different black groups have agreed to grant exclusive facilities in the making of this film; some, like Carmichael himself, breaking a self-imposed rule of non-co-operation with the media. For they agree that after five years of tumult and change and much distortion, the time has come for a cool dispassionate look at the whole movement and the whole idea.

After an accident at sea, a man is washed up on an island. Although he is a stranger to the people there, he discovers that he knows things about them. More importantly, he knows what is going to happen to them.
Two women in their 90s describe their life as Victorian teenagers. 'We never called ourselves teenagers - but we were certainly Victorians and quite proud to be it,' says Miss Frances E. Jones, who in 1892 trained as one of the first lady shorthand-typists.
Miss Berta Ruck, the romantic novelist, also trained in London in the 90s. 'I was very glad I was an art student,' she says, 'for we did do things and see things and go about as well-bred, sheltered girls never did.'
"They conjured up a vanished world of chaperones and horse buses, daring idyllic rides across the Home Counties and busy mornings typing stories for young Mr Somerset Maugham" (DAILY TELEGRAPH)
