Location excerpts shot on 16mm film from episode 9 of KQED's 1968 series Blacks, Blues, Black!, which features Dr. Maya Angelou interviewing Mary Jane Hewitt of UCLA, who accompanies her as they meet with community members on the streets of Watts in Los Angeles. She is trying to establish how the process of urban regeneration has been progressing since the social unrest ("riots") there in 1965. Note that the complete episode can now be viewed in DIVA.
