Sam Walton, Harlem activist and oral historian, felt strongly about teaching the youth of Harlem the legacy of the elders that came before him. Sam filmed many documentaries and interviews with the political and inspirational leaders of Harlem. It was important for the youth to appreciate and understand how history had progressed. One of the best interviews was with Charlie Rangel, a prominent New York politician. Sam had interviewed other leaders such as Bob Magnum, James Haugton, Dr. Lourdice, and Councilman Jackson.
