LSA senior and BA

The Brown case began in 1950 after
members of the National Association for
the Advancement of Colored People
chapter in Topeka, Kan. decided to chal-
lenge the "separate but equal" principle.
In the effort of filing a class action suit
against the Board of Education of Tope-
ka Public Schools, 13 parents attempted
to enroll their children in the schools.
After the schools
real refused enrollment,
the parents were to

ise of from Delaware, Vir-
ginia, South Carolina
- Kate Stenvig and Washington. On
MN organizer May 17, 1954, the
Supreme Court unan-
imously ruled, in
Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka,
that the "separate but equal" doctrine
violated the Fourteenth Amendment and
was unconstitutional.
"There is a natural connection
between Michigan and the Brown case,"
Serwach said. "A lot of people feel the
Michigan cases are a part of the Brown
legacy."

panel of converts to Islam sharing their
experiences.
"They are going to shed light a little
more on the positive side (of Islam), a
side that doesn't get touched upon in the
media," Rana said.
Rana said Islam Awareness Week also
brings together the Muslim student com-
munity and the campus community at
large, bringing together individuals who
might not otherwise have a lot of expo-
sure to one another outside of classes.
"You break out of your shell and talk
to people you might not usually talk to;'
Rana said, adding that he feels IAW is a
good learning experience for everyone
involved and promotes the exchange of
ideas and perspectives.
"They get a different perspective and
they get to communicate with Muslims
firsthand," Rana said. "They go to

school with people who are Muslim but
they don't really get a chance to talk to
us or hear from us our perspective. They
have certain built-in stereotypes about
Muslims and so it's really good for us to
communicate with each other and
understand both sides of the realm a lit-
tle bit better."
As for why students should attend the
lectures and participate in Islam Aware-
ness Week, Rana said the educational
opportunity is beneficial, and unlike the
television students might otherwise be
watching, not an everyday occurrence.
"I would say they should go because
in this day and age we hear so much
about Islam and a lot of the stuff going
on around us has a lot to do with Islam
... but often people aren't well-learned
about it," Rana said. "It'd help people
learn and they can have their questions
answered, if they have any misconcep-
tions or questions in general, it's a really
good educational experience."

LSA senior and BAMN organizer Kate
Stenvig said. The march will be held in
Washington to commemorate the Brown
case.
"Because it's the 50th anniversary, we
have a real opportunity to expose the
fact that our society is still segregated
and have the chance to realize the full
promise of Brown," Stenvig added.

were filled because the kidney failure
that he experienced was a result of
pledging activities - not drugs or alco-
hol involvement. Oates said that the kid-
ney failure was caused by severe muscle
breakdown.
"We have no evidence of a crime
here, obviously the student was put
through extraordinary rigorous activity,
but there were no drugs and alcohol
involved," Oates said.
But Oates said there were major com-
plications in their investigation of the
case. Most importantly, he said the
police were not alerted about the inci-
dent until Sept. 23, two weeks after it

occurred, and one week after the Univer-
sity was notified.
"The activity took place in the
evening and morning of Sept. 10 and 11,
(and) the University found out on Sept.
16. I found out Sept. 23, nearly two
weeks after the occurrence," Oates said.
University spokeswoman Julie Peter-
son said that the University waited so
long before contacting the police
because their primary concern was not
with criminal charges, but with the
physical health of Loomis.
"I think the University followed
actions it felt appropriate given the
circumstances. It acted from a disci-
plinary standpoint once they got a
better understanding of the situation,"
Peterson said.
