About This Item

KPIX-TV news footage from February 5 1970 with reporter Ben Williams featuring scenes from a press conference at Merritt College in Oakland, in which a representative of the New York branch of the Young Lords organization - Felipe Luciano - talks about the social and healthcare programs they are running. He also addresses forms of "oppression" faced by the Latinx communities on both east and west coasts. When Ben Williams is heard off-camera asking the question: "And how do you go about your work? What do you do?" Luciano replies: "Well, you stay on the streets, 8 days a week ... 25 hours a day. That's how you establish better relationships." Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
