In 1963, when the fight for civil rights was in full force in the United States, Austin Clarke, now an award winning author, traveled to Harlem to find out more about living conditions. He interviewed a wide variety of people: community workers, historians, journalists, and activists such as Malcolm X. What went to air was a two part documentary called 'Harlem in Revolt.' We include a bonus Part Three, which is Clarke's entire unedited interview with Malcom X.

The Masseys are a prestigious annual broadcast in which a noted Canadian or international scholar gives a weeklong series of lectures on a political, cultural or philisophical topic. King's title was "Conscience for Change." In the lectures, he talked about race relations, the war in Vietnam, youth and social action and non-violence as a tactic for social change.

For more than a hundred years, the tools of journalistic production – the ability to report, photograph and record events and distribute that material to a mass audience – have resided in the hands of a small group of people who, by convention and by law, have been called journalists. There is much to celebrate about this democratization of the media, but there are also reasons to be concerned about the loss of an independent, professional journalistic filter at a time when everyone can be their own media. Can online communities of "citizen journalists" be counted on to help us make informed choices as citizens and consumers? What's lost, and what's gained when "News 1.0" gives way to "News 2.0?"
