0   0

Author James Baldwin is taken on a tour of San Francisco by Orville Luster, Executive Director of Youth for Service. The tour takes them through the Hunters Point area, San Francisco's so-called "black ghetto," where 80 percent of the people are Negroes; through the Fillmore area, the "little Harlem"; and through the city's Western Addition redevelopment project - described by Mr. Baldwin as a "Negro removal" project. Mr. Baldwin and Mr. Luster talk to groups of Negroes from each area, as well as leaders of the Negro civic organizations and "action groups".
