This two-hour experiment in group dynamics has been extracted from an 11-hour dialogue organized by NET in light of the growing issues of black anti-Semitism and Jewish racism. The program attempts to use television as a medium through which dissident groups can commonly approach their problems. And it also asks them to probe the extent to which black anti-Semitism and Jewish racism are real - or press-made - issues. Seated on the floor at a Washington, DC, television studio, the participants include moderates and radicals, members of organizations and private citizens from both the Jewish and black communities. The moderators are a black and white psychologist from the National Training League (a branch of the NEA), P. Bertrand Phillips and Charles N. Seashore. The black participants are John F. Hatchett, suspended NYU professor, who formerly directed the University's Afro-American Student Center; Sydney Finley, Chicago field representative for the NAACP; Lou Smith, president of Operation Bootstrap, a Los Angeles technical training center; Charlotte Robinson, Project Follow Through teacher in Grand Rapids, Mich.; and Loriman Rhodell, a grass roots worker, who is involved with the New York Urban Coalition. The Jewish participants are Richard Cohen, assistant executive director of the American Jewish Congress; Rabbi Murray Saltzman of Indianapolis, who has been active in civil rights and was jailed with Dr. Martin Luther King during a demonstration in St. Augustine, Fla.; Paul Jacobs, political activist and radical author ("The New Radicals," "Is Curly Jewish?"); Edward Solomon, principal of a Harlem junior high school; Mrs. Naomi Mandlebaum, Detroit teacher and housewife; and Milton Hoffman, a Washington merchant whose store was twice burnt out during the riots.
