MILK DAY

The Michigan Daily - Tuesday, January 20, 1998 - 7A

EST
ontinued from Page IA
"We don't want to put him on some pedestal and
jew him as some icon that is not part and parcel
om what we can be doing," West said.
West urged the audience not only to reflect on
ing's work, but to live up to his dream and ideals.
"The fact that he affected each and every one of
,hould be celebrated if we are serious about
ting his challenge. For me, the fundamental
uestion for 1998 is whether we have the capacity
keep this tradition of struggle alive - and at
mes, it does not look good."
Many audience members found West's speech
plifting and consistent with King's legacy.
"1 thought it was brilliant," said Public Health
rst-year student Rupal Sanghvi. "He brought up
lot of really important paradigms that aren't
ften discussed in the mainstream press."
West received an extended standing ovation for
mpassioned memorial lecture.
"Because he personifies what he says, he has a
nd of strength I have not seen in a long time," said
nn Arbor resident Ayron Smith-Douglas. "King
res my spirit. Malcolm fired my spirit. This is the
ath that West personifies -the breath of Dr. King
d Malcolm X that keeps the spirit alive."
West also spoke about the lawsuits that target
e University's affirmative action policies.
"Right now, Michigan is at the center of the fight
affirmative action. We should not just protect
mative action, but keep traditions of the
umanity in each and everyone of us," West said.

West stressed the need for organization on the
"intellectual, political, economic and cultural front."
"The way he tied affirmative action into (his
lecture) made it morepersonal for us," said LSA
junior Stephanie Siaw. "He was just riveting -
he's an amazing orator."
West urged the audience to look ahead to the
future when fighting current battles, and to "keep
your eyes on the prize."
"No matter how much (King) was scomed, he
would keep his eyes on the prize. What kind of life do
you really want to live? Come what may, I want to go
down fighting because I want to be part of the same
tradition that Martin Luther King was," he said.
West discussed the dangers of a society in which
white supremacy, male supremacy, racism, homo-
phobia and anti-semitism exist.
"Is it possible to keep alive the tradition of strug-
gle that Martin Luther King exemplified in our pre-
sent dark and different times?" West asked.
West also talked about the corporate economy and
market forces that affect the country today, and the
inequality and isolation that results.
"Martin Luther King did not live to see what I
believe is the distinctive feature of our era - the
unprecedented releasing of market forces such that
we have never seen ... The erosion of caring would
produce more mean-spiritedness" he said.
West was introduced by Associate Provost for
Academic and Multicultural Affairs Lester Monts,
University President Lee Bollinger and Provost
Nancy Cantor.

SYMPOSIUM
Continued from Page 1A
the University of Pennsylvania's Martin Luther
King, Jr. commemoration, said Penn has been
trying to make their program more extensive.
Mapp said there have been many complaints
because Penn did not officially cancel classes
in honor of King this year.
"We believe the man was so great it's good to
keep his name alive throughout the year," Mapp
said. "We don't want to limit him to one day."
Mapp said her university's highlights
include speakers, an anti-violence vigil, gospel
groups and poetry readings. She said there
were discussions yesterday designed to exam-
ine the relationship between African
Americans and Jewish students.
"It's important to maintain the dialogue. We
use this as a starting point for us to speak with
each other at the university," Mapp said. "We
have been trying to make our events as exten-
sive as the University of Michigan, but we
haven't gotten there yet."
Gila Reinstein, Yale University's public
information officer, said that although students
do not have the holiday off, they are still
encouraged to participate in events. Reinstein
said there were three major campus-wide
events planned yesterday.
"Martin Luther King was a great figure in
American history," Reinstein said. "There is a
tremendous amount of interest in marking the
day."

Rap artist and political activist Chuck D livened up the panel discussion yesterday at the first-
ever MLK colloquium, one of many University events held to celebrate MLK Day.
Michigan State University Multicultural major celebration every spring"
Officer Natalie Thomason said that the universi- Ryan Gravatt, a student at the University of
ty's decision to hold classes yesterday prompted Florida, said students in Gainesville did not go to
complaints from students. Thomason said most class in order to participate in events takingplace.
MSU events, including films, speakers and a "I guess having the day off encourages stu-
public march, were held yesterday. dents to come out," Gravatt said.
"They are working on getting the day off But Gravatt said that despite the university
next year," Thomason said. "I think more peo- holiday and planned activities, most studentsand
ple would come if classes were canceled." faculty still are talking about the racial remarks
"There is typically a good turnout for the made by Florida President John Lombardi rather
