Mideast
By CARRIE LORANGER
The Reagan administration will
play a key role in the future of the
Plestinian people, said Hanna
Siniora, an Israeli journalist who
spoke at Rackham amphitheater last
ight.
Siniora spoke briefly on the
history of conflict in the Middle
East before taking questions from
tie audience of 90.
He asserted that the Reagan
administration should facilitate
tiogotiations between Israel and the
Palestinian Liberation Organ-
i ation.
Siniora said he does not support
tlAe administration's policy in the
Middle East, particularly in the
Iran-Iraq war. "The arms deal only
prolonged the war between Iran and
Iraq," said Siniora. He warned that
the deal may cause the U.S. to lose
smpport from Arab nations, leading
to a "Third World" confrontation.
Siniora said that the Pale-
stinians want peace. "Everybody is
blaming the Palestinians, but they
; eager for peace," said Siniora.
. The problem, he said, is that the
fWvo sides can never come together
for peaceful negotiations. "The
oQice of peace is heard through a
Turd party or a proxy," Siniora
paid.

"We are absolutely certain that

Arbor's delegation. "There were
witnesses who saw their FDN

Black history month begins

By EUGENE PAK
More than being a source of
aesthetic pleasure, art is often a
reflection of the values and
traditions of the people who
produce it.
With this in mind, many of the
student groups organizing activities
for February's Black History Month
will hold presentations featuring
African and Afro-American art.
Last night in East Quad,
members of Abeng, the minority
affairs council in the dorm, kicked
off the events with their 13th
annual Minority Arts and Cultural
Festival.
This year's theme was "Re-
flections on Us," derived from a
poem written by Abeng President
Doris Christian.
"Abeng" is the name of a
Jamaican horn which was sounded
to bring neighboring tribes to-
gether, according to Christian.
"It is a symbol of unity, which
we would also like to portray in our
festival this year," Christian said.
In his keynote address, Uni-
versity sociology Prof. Walter
Allen elaborated on this theme.
"Our task is to make our works
extensions of the core black
tradition... (and) monuments to the
spirits and traditions which have
brought us here so far," he said.
Allen also said it was important
for young blacks to examine black
art and culture in order to establish
a true sense of identity.
In keeping with this idea, two
student jazz groups, Key West and
.Cadeau 'a Vous, performed later in

the East Quad auditorium.
Tonight at 7 p.m., Abeng will
hold a gospel singing program in
the Mendelssohn Theatre in the
Michigan League, while Alpha
Kappa Alpha sorority hosts a
scholarship performance in the
Union ballroom at 9 p.m.
Saturday afternoon workshops
on black art, poetry and politics
will be held in East Quad, followed
by Abeng's annual fashion/talent
show at 6:30 p.m. and a dance at 10
p.m.
On Sunday, Minority Student
Services will sponsor an Afro-
American art exhibit in the
Michigan Union at 3 p.m.
University lecturer Jon Onye
Lockard, who has painted many of
the murals found in residence hall
minority lounges, will give the

opening speech.
In a press release, Lockard said
that despite a traditional bias
against Afro-American art in
America's art galleries and
museums, the movement still
perseveres.

Many other University
community sponsored events
be held throughout the month.

and
will

This coming week the art of
black students and local artists will
be shown in the room 1209 in the
Michigan Union from 3 to 5 p.m.

students will perform in the
Mendelssohn Theatre at 7 p.m.
And on the 15th, University
alumna Janet Taylor Pickett will

her art in the Michigan Union at 3
p.m.
