Atkins, Tom

Description: Thomas Atkins addresses the Northeastern States Youth Citizenship Conference. He talks about the Black Manifesto which caused a controversy at the Riverside Church in New York. He says that the church has not taken a particularly positive active stance, but could be a powerful resource. After the air piece there is silent b-roll of exteriors and interiors of the Conference, and shots of the audience listening to Atkins, who is speaking from a podium.
