Interview with Mike Wallace

What sort of response did the show get?


John Crosby was the, the nation's television critic at the time. He was astonished, wrote about it, wrote about it glowingly, and suggested that other people should pay attention to it. As a result of which, because up to that time there hadn't been a word about the Black Muslims in any, uh, uh, White publication. Following that, _US News_, _The New York Times_, _Time_, _Newsweek_, others, followed up, _The Free Press_ out in Detroit, actually it was the first time that the Black Muslims came to the attention of White America.
