From the Archive: Frank Marshall Davis Interview

Interview with notable African-American poet and journalist Frank Marshall Davis. Davis is mentioned in President Barack Obama's Dreams From My Father as a drinking buddy of his grandfather and as an African American who made an impression on him as a young man growing up in Hawaii. The Film & Media Archive partnered with the Center for Labor Education and Research (CLEAR) at the University of Hawaii West Oahu to preserve the interview.  For more information on our Frank Marshall Davis Collection, please click here
