Season 1, Ep. 409

In March 1962, a group of college students formed the Afro-American Association in the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Area. Among other things, the Association broadcast a weekly radio show in San Francisco. On August 15, 1965, Attorney Donald Warden (later Dr. Khalid Al-Mansour) broadcast a program on the Watts Riot or Rebellion. Ray Dobard, the owner of the Music City record store and recording studio, turned Warden's speech into an LP, which also features comments from the reggae musician Johnny Nash.
