Episode 10 of a 10-part TV series made by Dr. Maya Angelou for KQED in 1968 called Blacks, Blues, Black!, which examines the influence of African American culture on modern American society. Includes scenes of Dr. Angelou in the studio recapping on subjects covered in the previous nine episodes. Dr. Angelou also provides a selected reading list (which appears on-screen) of books she feels will assist viewers for their own personal research. Ends with Dr. Angelou reading Margaret Walker's poem 'For My People', first published in 1942. The final lines, read by Dr. Angelou with great passion, are as follows: "Let a beauty full of / healing and a strength of final clenching be the pulsing / in our spirits and our blood. Let the martial songs / be written, let the dirges disappear. Let a race of men now / rise and take control." This episode was written and produced by Dr. Maya Angelou and directed by Robert Hagopian.
