Summary: Ron Scott is joined by Bobby Seale, a co-founder of the Black Panther party. A audience member asks if Seale has some constructive ideas that can be implemented on the community level to continue the education of the younger generation and communication. Seale believes it's important that organizations are taught how to put periodicals together, and that schools are given guidance as to proper curriculum.
Scott asks if it is truly possible for blacks to take over any communications apparatus, such as TV and mass media, as he suggested was necessary for proper education. Seale says that many blacks do not recognize the large amount of talent that exists in the black communities across the country. He thinks that blacks must understand that attending college and getting a proper education is imperative no matter what they want to do, whether it is to get a good job or be a member of the struggle.
