"It's good to acknowl-
edge the accomplishments
and struggles of blacks, but
it should be done through-
out the year. If we are try-
ing to talk about injustices
in the past, then it should
be brought to the surface.
It should be done 365 days
a year. One black leader
that has meant a lot to me
is Randall Robinson and
his book 'The Debt:
What America Owes to
Blacks.' I like his work
because he blatantly states
what America owes to
blacks and why reparations
are important.'
- Tiffany Williams, LSA
"I think Black History
Month is an important step-
ping stone toward educat-
ing people about equality .
If you suddenly erased all
the art, music, literature
and technology created by
blacks, women, American
Indians and other minority
groups fighting for repre-
sentation, then the world
would be a very different
place and shitty place. It is
about time that we as a
nation set aside bigotry
and schisms. and Black
History Month is definately
a strong beginning."
-Jeremy Bedzow
School of Music, sophomore

"February is a time to
remember those who came
before me and made it possi-
ble to come to a prestigious
University like this one. It is
also a month for me to
remember that I should not
forget about those less fortu-
nate and try to make it possi-
ble for them to accomplish
their dreams. It is easy to
become complacent, however,
people forget about reaching
back for those they left
Mario Miner; LSA senior
"I think Black History Month is
important because it makes us aware
of the past struggles of African
Americans and the substantial amount
of injustices they have had to face. I
think a lot of the time people may be
busy and caught up in their own world
and tend to forget about issues like
this. I know I do sometimes, and I think
that reserving a month to honor African
Americans helps us recognize the
influential people who fought for their
freedoms and acknowledge their con-
tributions to society.
I've always been extremely inter-
ested in government and politics, so I'd
have to say that Condoleeza Rice,
President Bush's national security
advisor, is someone I greatly admire.
She grew up in the south during the
Civil Rights movement, which I think
helped make her a strong person. She
is a smart and respected woman who
has accomplished so many amazing
things. What is most important is that
she never let the fact that she was
African American or that she was a
woman stand in the way of her goals."
-Tyra Saechao, LSA, sophomore
