By SAM DUDEK
FOR THE DAILY
The Black Student Union continued its
celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birth-
day, with a speech last night by former Black
Panther Rasul Mohammed at Hale Audito-
With incense filling the Business school
auditorium, Mohammed spoke of the "real
Dr. King" and his hopes for America in the
Mohammed was imprisoned in 1971 as
part of the FBI'sCointel Program. He claimed
the program's main objective was to termi-
