Press Conference with Dr. Arthur Coleman, Terry Francois & Reverend H. Boswell

About This Item

KRON News footage from September 29th 1966, featuring scenes from press conferences by Dr. Arthur Coleman, Terry Francois and Reverend H. Boswell in San Francisco. They all describe their reaction to the Bayview Hunters Point social uprising, express little faith in any police investigation of the shooting of teenager Matthew 'Peanut' Johnson and explain the need for African Americans to be involved in policy making. Rev. Boswell refers with cold fury to a lack of police cooperation with the community and how: "These older policeman who know how to 'handle niggers' dominate the police department and control its relationship with the negro community."
