A Bay Sunday program broadcast on 4th October 1992 and presented by Barbara Rogers discussing the anti-hate crime campaign Unified Against Genocide with its founders Angela Davis and Diane Chin. During the discussion the founders defend the use of the term 'genocide' to unify victims of hate crime by referring to the experience of Native Americans. Both describe the types of hate crime perpetrated in the Bay Area and also refer to the case of Rodney King as an example of 'state perpetrated hate crime'. It is also pointed out that anyone can be affected by hate crime as victim or perpetrator. Angela Davis promotes a forthcoming hearing on hate crime in Oakland (10/29/92) aimed at increasing testimony by diverse sectors of society, to counter the lack of hate crime statistics being collected by the state. She also expresses solidarity with Native Americans at the time of Columbus Day by bringing all victims of hate crime together for a common purpose. The TV Archive would like to thank guest-intern Siân Williams who remastered, catalogued and edited this show for the web.
