Over the past 30 years, St. Clair Bourne has amassed a substantial body of work about strong and controversial black artists and leaders: LeRoi Jones, Langston Hughes, Spike Lee, and John Henrick Clarke, among others. Most recently he's set his sights on the singer, actor, and activist Paul Robeson and former Black Panther Stokely Carmichael. Here Bourne reflects on his long career, the state of black documentary, and modern-day griots. In person, St. Clair Bourne exudes much of the same charisma that the subjects of his documentaries and news pieces are known for--people like Amiri Baraka (formerly LeRoi Jones), Malcolm X, and Langston Hughes, to name a few, who seem to possess a passion that is uncommon in this age. Though the impression of Bourne etched in my mind comes from images taken nearly 30 years ago, when he was a young face behind PBS's Black Journal, he is still easily recognizable these days, commanding an air of respect on the set, like a five-star general in the old-school military.  [http://PeaceCorpsOnline.org/messages/messages/467/2014293.html Click this link to read more.]
