On Thursday, September 3 at 8pm EST, We Talk Productions presents Port Of Harlem Talk Radio. Host Wayne A. Young talks with Dr. Ida Jones, University Archivist at Morgan State University, and Sandra Schulberg, president and executive director of IndieCollect, which saves American independent films. With you, they will discuss the finding and restoration of NationTime-Gary, a film on the 1972 National Black Political Convention, that debuts in virtual cinemas through Kino Marquee October 23. 

In the second half hour, Young will talk with Melvin Foote, president of the Constituency for Africa, about the current U.S. President’s Africa agenda, or lack thereof. Foote will also share what advocates for Africa should be demanding from candidates regarding policies toward the homeland.

Jones, one of the next show's first guests, is also the author of four biographies including "Baltimore Civil Rights Leader, Victorine Quille Adams and the Power of the Ballot.” She took preserving Adam’s legacy a step further and did what was necessary to have Adams inducted into the Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame. In 2018, she conducted the How to Preserve Your Legacy program for Port Of Harlem and the Alexandria Black History Museum.

Schulberg is also a longtime advocate of "Off-Hollywood" filmmakers. She currently serves on the advisory committee of the Women's Film Preservation Fund (created by Women in Film & Television) and is a member of the Association of Moving Image Archivists. As a producer, she has many films to her credit.

Foote is president of one of the surviving Africa advocacy groups in America. The Rockville, Illinois native has more than 35 years of experience and has worked in over 30 African countries. CFA has established a network of organizations, groups, and individuals committed to the progress and empowerment of Africa and African people worldwide. The Washington, DC based organization continues to build public and private support for Africa, and help shape a progressive U.S. policy towards Africa.
