She was born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Her daughter now is a competitive tennis player. Will a Black woman some day wear the Soviet emblem at Forest Hills? Dr. Golden-Hanga now specializes in the study of Black nationalism at the African Institute of the Academy of Sciences, U.S.S.R. Her views on what is and is not Black, in terms of ethnic affiliation is most interesting. The interview was performed by William Mandel and his wife in a hotel restaurant in Moscow. The interview is 31 minutes long, followed by Mandel answering listener's phone calls.

The interview portion of this recording is the same as that found on AZ0438. AZ0438 is of better quality as well. While the interview portion is the same in both programs, each recording has unique introductions and listener call-ins.
