Johnson to open ABENG's ioiy festival tonight
TheBy REBECCA BLUMENSTEIN
Teevents of the twelfth annual Minority and
Cultural Festival, designed "to bring strength
in unity" to all minorities and non-minorities
*on campus, will begin tonight at East Quad.
Henry Johnson, the University's vice
president for student services will kick-off the
festivities at 7 p.m. He will be followed by a
jazz concert, and events will continue through
*"THROUGH THIS festival of minority art
and culture we hope to combine and show all
the talents of minorities on campus," said
Tracy Weary, a Residential College freshman
and member of ABENG, the group sponsoring
the event. Named for the Jamaican word for a
horn used to call people together, ABENG is
East Quad's minority council.
The festival highlights also include a gospel
concert featuring five groups, a local ethnic
art exhibit, a poetry reading, a political
workshop about apartheid, and other displays.
.The events will culminate in a Fashion and
Performing Arts show on Saturday, according
to Weary. .
ABENG received funds for this weekend's
events from the East Quad Representative
Assembly. "They weren't initially very
responsive to our needs, though," We&ary said.
BECAUSE OF rising costs of producing the
festival, ABENG asked for $4,000 of the $6,000
annual budget of the representative assembly,
said Amelia Bischoff, a hall representative.
"There was a struggle getting past the assem-
bly because most of the representatives are
-freshmen and- had no idea where the money
was going," she added.
Bischoff, who wrote a letter of apology to
ABENG after the organization finally received
approval, said, that the emotions got so high
that people accused others of not being worth
Carlton Jackson, president of ABENG, said
the event was too quickly sensationalized as
racist. "We asked for a lot, and it was just a
rnratter of showing them that it was going to be
a worthwhile cause," he added.
Deba Pawlick, the building director of East
Quad, agreed. "There was some misunder-
standing because ABENG didn't adequately
publicize their needs, but the struggle between
the assembly and ABENG has been blown out
fproportion," he said.
Jackson said an effort is being made to in-
clude as many minorities as possible.
ANN ARBOR (AP) - Racial
prejudice in the United States has
dropped considerably over the past
four decades, although whites remain
less enthusiastic about the equality
than blacks, according to a University
of Michigan study.
The amount of support for
integration yaries according to what
is being integrate.d, said the study by
three researchers who used data
IT FOUND a substantial increase in

On other issues, such as economic
assistance to blacks, there was little
attitude change. .
"A reason for the high support for
the desegregation of hotels and
commodations represent a transient
and relatively impersonal shpere of
life," the researchers said in a
statement released Tuesday.
But Howard Schuman, professor of
sociology and director of the Univer-
sity's Survey Research Center, said

ciples and implementation should not
automatically be interpreted as a
symptom of racist hypocrisy.
ply reflect a public dislike of gover-
nment coercion in general.
By 1972, the study noted, "virtually
the entire white population felt that
blacks and whites should be judged
equally in terms of employment.".
But a quarter of tfie whites surveyed
made one exception - the job of
president of the United States.
