The Two Nations of Black America: Frontline Online

This companion site to a recent Frontline examines the growing class gap within the African-American community. The site features a powerful essay by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., the correspondent and writer for Frontline's report, RealPlayer audio and text from the Du Bois Institute's 1997 forum, economic and social statistics, and interviews with prominent African-American activists and scholars, including Eldridge Cleaver, Angela Davis, Cornel West, and Jesse Jackson. Additional resources include a summary of the debate between Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois, a movie of the Howard University 1968 Takeover, a discussion forum, and a collection of readings and links. A complete transcript of the show is forthcoming.
