Actor-playwright Ossie Davis at the conference "The Negro writer in the United States," sponsored by the University of California Extension school. Davis reads from his play "Purlie Victorious" and discusses race relations in the United States and his use of literature to better the situation in a speech that he will later publish as "The wonderful world of law and order." James Baldwin, originally scheduled to close the conference, canceled, and Ossie Davis stepped in with this presentation.

"The Negro writer in the United States" was a five-day seminar hosted by the University of California at Berkeley Extension Program, held at the Asilomar State Park in California, August 5-9, 1964.
