I Heard It Through The Grapevine with James Baldwin

Little more than a decade after he served as the literary clarion for the civil rights movement, writer James Baldwin revisits some of the sites of its critical moments and finds that not nearly enough has changed. This powerful and long-obscure documentary from Dick Fontaine and Pat Hartley speaks to the current moment as much as its time. -LG
