keynote speaker, Derrick Bell, a
former Harvard Law School Prof will
address the issue of equality.
After leaving Harvard last year
because the institution failed to hire a
woman of color on the faculty, Bell
authored "Faces at the Bottom of the
Well," in which he writes, "(Blacks
not attaining full equality) is. a hard-
to-accept fact that all history verifies.
We must acknowledge it, not as a sign
of submission, but as a act of ultimate
In addition to other lectures and
panel discussions, there will be ac-
tivities put on throughout the dorms
that include an African-American doll
making workshop, a trip to Detroit's
African-American History Museum
and numerous talent and art show-
Students said they feel these events
should be attended by all members of
the University community, but the
celebration of Black history should
not be limited to one month.
Pride and appreciation should be
shown all year long, Black Student
Union (BSU) Speaker Althea Gordon
said. She explained the BSU spon-
sors activities that extend throughout
the fall and winter semesters.
"Black History Month is a time to
remember the contributions of Afri-
can-Americans not written in the his-
tory books," said Barbara Robinson,
a MSS senior representative.
Director of the Office of Academic
and Multicultural Initiatives John
"While we celebrate our culture,
we need to recognize the disparities
that still exist in society," Matlock
said. He also represents the feelings
of many when he says that "(Black
History Month) is a time to reflect and
to look forward. Much still needs to
be done to have full equality."

dispute over nearby parking.
First Centrum wants a 50-percent
break on lease rates for 270 parking
spaces near the inn. Several members
of the City Council and Downtown
Development Authority (DDA) are
reluctant to give what they deem a
$210,000 handout'to First Centrum.
Opponents claimed the I0-year
rate reduction would set a bad prece-
dent, gobbling up scarce downtown
First Centrum Treasurer Nicholas
Faber did not insist on the rate cut. "I
think this is the only way I see this
process moving along," he said after
backing down from the request.
Councilmember Ulrich Stoll (D-
3rd Ward) asked his colleagues not to
be sidetracked by the parking dispute.
"The capital improvements to the
building loom much larger than the
money involved with parking."

The committee agreed to a
member's suggestion to allow the
candidates to each give a brief state-
ment before the election. Before
yesterday's meeting, the election was
a dead heat between Loup and Brewer.
Both Loup and Griffin - who
was elected vice chair - delivered,
acceptance speeches that reiterated
their accomplishments and claimed
the election was a validation of the,
Brewer cited the example of the
Senate Assembly's request asking

"This large number of small dona-
tions is a good indicator of the
grassroots strength of our campaign,"
But Councilmember Peter Fink
(R-2nd Ward) opposed any subsidy
to First Centrum on principle.
"When I voted for this proposal, it
was on the understanding that the city
would be nothing more than a pass-
through agent for the title from the
(Department of Natural Resources)
to First Centrum and a conduit for
input on how this project is going to
be done," Fink said.
On the thorny issue of labor waget

First Centrum avoided disagreement
Councilmember Tobi Hanna
Davies (D-1st Ward), a member of
the Ann Arbor Inn Negotiation Com-
mittee, urged First Centrum to pay its
workers the standard union wage for
construction. But she admitted the
city can't force First Centrum to abide
by the "prevailing-wage standard."
Faber said his company will strive
to hire local contractors for the project,
which is scheduled to begin this sum-
mer. He said prevailing wages would
push the project cost over budget.

"She did not outline her views or
what her priorities are. Today's one
vote margin seems not to have been a
positive vote for anything in particu-
lar. I feel the chair plays a key role in

"SACUA should take a more ac-

more suggestions on policies that con-

Despite the controversy surround-

optimistic the differences will be re-

have diverse opinions. I don't think
it'll be easy but I'm hopeful I will
