Program Title:
The Harlem Six: a drama and statements from the trial
PRA Archive #: 

A program about the Harlem Six, "and the torture and persecution of them and their mothers, from 1964 to 1971." Presented by Doloris Costello. Part one includes excerpts of a benefit performance of a dramatization of the "Little Fruit Stand Riot" which led to the arrest of the Harlem Six. The performance was held at the Town Hall in New York City on April 17, 1966, in support of the Harlem Six. Performance includes music by Max Roach with Abby Lincoln on vocals, called "The Freedom Suite." (Ossie Davis is named on the tape box, but there is no introduction of him in the recording). Tapes provided by Mimi Shoffer[sp?]. The second part of the program is a conversation with Conrad Lynn (one of the Harlem Six's lawyers) about what is happening in 1971 to the Harlem Six, and what those concerned can do to help the Harlem Six and their mothers.
