Description: Footage from the opening night of the Berklee Performance Center. B-roll of patrons entering the Center and mingling in the lobby, tickets being taken, programs being handed out, and the audience seated in the auditorium. Michael Dukakis opening speech, followed by a speech by a representative from the Berklee Performance Center introducing the night's Jazz program. More footage of both speeches. Part of one of the Jazz performances, and a reading about drums, Africa, and slavery while a man plays bongo drums. Picture is shaky and unsteady throughout. The problem appears to be printed in. The picture and soundtrack were separated on the reel, but synced for the clip. Mix of sound and silent. This is 1 of 2 reels.
