support?"
LSA sophomore Michael Wells
agreed, saying student involvement
in MLK Day "shows that MLK's
dream is coming true. We have to
work together to see equality for all
people."
Ahmad Rahmad of the Baker-
Mandela Center stressed the impor-
tance of student involvement in
MLKDay and social struggle.
"There are three legs of the
struggle - the people in the com-
munity, working people in factories
and students," he said.
To the dismay of those who
wanted to sleep off the effects of an
extended weekend, many professors
required students to attend MLK
Day events.
"It's unfortunate that it takes a
classroom assignment to bring stu-
dents out," said LSA junior Dafinah
Blacksher. "I want to see lack of
student activism addressed."

MUHAMMAD
Continued from page 1
But he said he also found it odd
that through the weekend Moody
continued to talk to media, like
Detroit television channel 2 WJBK
and the Detroit Free Press, about
Muhammad's visit - after he knew
Muhammad had canceled.
"Dr. Moody's the one who cre-
ated this. He invited Khallid
Muhammad. He learned Khallid
Muhammad wasn't coming. He con-
tinued to make confrontations (with
the media) It doesn't make sense,"
Goldstein said.
In response Moody said,
"Nobody asked me. (The media)
were telling me what I should do.
They asked whether I could set an
example by (inviting Muhammad)."
The Daily was not able to reach
the Nation of Islam last night to un-
cover why it decided to withdraw
Muhammad - who serves as an as-
sistant to leader Louis Farrakhan -
from participation in the Martin
Luther King Day Symposium.

proval from the audience with her
speech that encouraged students to
work toward equality for women,
minorities and the poor in America.
"We must re-dedicate ourselves
to Dr. King's ideals which he
worked so hard for and gave his life
to achieve - racial equality,"
Wattleton said.
Moore Campbell talked to an
audience of mainly high school stu-
dents about the future of the African
American family and its struggle in
today's society. She said she be-
lieves reconstructing the family is
the key to economic well-being.
"We are America's abused chil-
dren," Moore Campbell said. "Black
must be made beautiful again."
Naylor spoke to students and
faculty about her love for books and
learning as she was growing up. She
said she feels African Americans are
giving up the political and emotional
access to libraries, one of the steps
King fought to achieve.
"What has gone wrong in the
African American community that
(the library) is not revered?" Naylor
asked.
"We've got to give them back
their dreams," Naylor added. "A
person without a dream is just a
dead soul."

myself."
Added Glover: "I think we were
all changed by that period in a way,
even though there was a decline in
people who appreciated Martin's
work during the mid- to late-'60s,
that period as young leaders came to
the front. I think that people still
embraced his ideas and thoughts."
Justice and Glover described
their outlook on America during a
brief question-and-answer session
following the readings.
"I think that we as African
Americans should ... look to the ex-
amples of Martin Luther King and of
Langston Hughes as vehicles
through which we can determine and
focus our own destiny," Justice told
the audience. "I think that instead of
despairing, we should listen to what
Martin has to say to us, and to what
Langston has to say to us, and then
let us go on to new horizons from
there:"
Glover said he was pleased the
film "The Color Purple" provoked
discussion, but he said he did not
think the film was snubbed at the
Oscars because it focused on an
African American family.
Justice closed the evening with
two words that King once remarked:
"Stick together."

Georgetown law
professor advocates
university regulations
punishing racially-
motivated hate
speech
Speaking as a cultural observer
and philosopher, Anita Allen,
Georgetown University law profes-
sor and former University of
Michigan Philosophy Ph.D. student
discussed her views regarding justi-
fiable punishment on university
campuses nationwide.
Allen divided the various racial
experiences on campus into three
categories - inadvertent slights,
contentious hate speech and racially-
motivated violence.
Allen said universities need to
strengthen regulations punishing
students involved in incidents of
racial insensitivity.
"The case against punishing
racial insensitivity is not so good,"
she said, adding that punishments do
not prevent the perpetrators from re-
peating similar actions.
To illustrate her argument, Allen,
described a case at George Mason
University, involving a charity event
"Dress as a Sig" - which featured
men impersonating images of what
they conceived as ugly women. One
white male dressed in "black-face"
offended many of the Black students
on the campus.
Although the university punished
the fraternity by denying it social
privileges, the sentence was short-
lived after a federal judge ruled the
punishment unconstitutional -
claiming that a public university
may not punish a student who uses
non-violent but offensive speech.
Allen said she recognizes that,
even with the punishment of racial
incidents, there is the need for satis-
fying means for minority students to
cope with these incidents. She also
advocated codes that would prevent
everyone from being insulted, both-
ered, or affected.
"Minority students need to have a
context in which they can learn
along with (a recourse for) punish-
ment."
- by Tanisha Harris

ECivil rights leader
speaks of coming of
age in an era of ethnic
struggles
In commemoration of Martin
Luther King Day, Bernard Lafayette,
the president of the American Bap- *
tist College in Tennessee, spoke
about the challenges facing activists
struggling for human rights in the
1990s.
Students who attended Lafayet-
te's Sunday talk on "The Movement
for Human Rights: Yesterday's
Struggles, Today's Challenges'
heard the 52- year-old veteran of the
civil rights movement describe the
circumstances and experiences that 5
inspired him as an activist.
As a boy, Lafayette was attune to
contradictory messages spoken froml
the pulpit. During church services,
the minister would tell the congre-
gation to, "stand up and have self
respect, don't let anyone push you
around." On the way out of the
church they were told "don't get into
trouble with white folk."
Lafayette called the division of *
people on the basis of race,
"immoral.
"It denies a person's basic free-
dom...whites suffered as much or
more because of segregation - it
denied them the freedom and oppor-
tunity of learning about other
cultures."
Central to Lafayette's philosophy
of effective action is the crossing of
borders - making forays into an-
other's territory.
"Physical barriers formed psy-
chological barriers ... The only way
to keep this illusion of the
separateness of whites and Blacks
was to keep this segregation going."
While lamenting the "assass-
ination" of the civil rights movement
and its leadership, Lafayette told the
audience to "take off the glasses of
cynicism."
People should recognize MLK
Day as a day when the subjugated
"celebrate a philosophy, an idea, a
methodology for changing the op-
pression in their lives."
Lafayette concluded his speech
by singing a song of struggle: "No,
we'll never turn back until we are
free, until we've all been freed."
