KPIX News report by Ed Arnow from October 6th 1968 featuring a visit to the Black Man's Art Gallery at 619 Haight Street in San Francisco, which has been open for one year. The owner Bill Thomas is interviewed and states that: "I opened this gallery to show the image of black people to relate to and identify with. And in rejecting the image of black people it's not a matter of we are going to be, it's a matter of we are." Thomas goes onto explain what he means by the phrase a "black standard of beauty." Ends with silent views of art and sculpture on display in the gallery. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
