BC Grad Joins Financial Aid [Newspaper Article] — Collage — 7 March 1977

BC Grad Joins Financial Aid by Daryl A. Logan As you probably know by now, there is anew Assistant Director of Financial Aid for Minority Students. His name is Phil Jackson and he is assuming the position previously held by Sydney Holloway. Assuming any new position poses the obvious problems of acquainting oneself with the new position and fellow workers and devising a course of action for the position. Phil Jackson has not been exempt from any of the routine problems, but has adjusted to his new position rather quickly, having been previously acquainted with the Boston College financial aid system, as an undergraduate. A native of Boston, Phil is a graduate of the Boston College School of Management, graduating in 1974, with a BS in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. While at Boston College, he worked as Financial Aid Administrator in the Black Talent Program, under Sydney Holloway. After graduating, Phil worked for the Mobil Oil Corp. as a marketing repres...

Black Music Traced [Newspaper Article] — Collage — 7 March 1977

Black Music Traced by Doreen L. Cook On Feb. 2 at 8 pm in Roberts Center, the UGBC Cultural Committee presented "Feelin’ Good,” a National Theatre Company production. According to a previous article, “during it’s premiere last season, the production received consistantly enthusiastic reviews and standing ovations.” Also, “Feelin' Good” proved to be a favorite with the student and faculty delegates to the National Education Council convention in Washington, D.C. at which it was a show case production. “Feelin' Good” retraces the history of the black man’s music and his contribution to the general aspect of music. From the early gospel tunes of the South, to the blues of yesterday and today, every song, dance, and narrated historical fact, touched the hearts of the audience. Based on facts, this talented company demonstrated that Gospel music was the beginning of the music blacks, both young and old, easily identify with. The melody “Good Vibrations” strongly opened the show with an e...

Julian Bond Makes An Appeal for Youths [Newspaper Article] — Collage — 7 March 1977

Julian Bond Makes An Appeal for Youths by Julian Bond This letter was sent to a BC student. The Collage staff thought it an interesting piece of information front the Southern Poverty Law Center, and decided to reprint it. Dear Friend, Back in 1931, racial prejudice and hatred brought death sentences for nine black teenagers in Scottsboro, Alabama, after they were falsely accused of raping two white women. The infamous case is supposed to be ancient history, and many saw the recent pardon of the last known living “Scottsboro Boy” as proof that the time for such gross injustices in the South is at last over. But is it really? In just a few weeks five black youths in Dawson, Georgia, face trials which could place them in the electric chair for a crime they did not commit - the kill-, ing of a white man during a store holdup. The Center has taken their case, and I want to tell you their story and then explain why we urgently need your help if we are to prove their innocence. Early last...

Every Family Has a Legacy [Newspaper Article] — Collage — 7 March 1977

Every Family Has a Legacy by Myra Rodriguez As Alex Haley has recently shared his poignant, African legacy drama with millions of television viewers and readers, it would .similarly give me great pleasure to reproduce my heritage to you. My heritage deals with a proud, yet untutored people. These people have been disillusioned by deceitful, greedy leaders. We have consequently been awakened to the melodramatics of poverty and fear. I speak, of course, of the Cuban race. ' Though I wish that I could trace my family tree from its origin, I do not have the time nor the money to do so. Thus, what I am presenting is only a minute segment of a complex geneaology. Both of my parents were born in the small village of Guantanamo, which is located in the western part of Cuba. Being born in a small, underdeveloped village, brings certain advantages and as one can guess, certain disadvantages. Water supply, transportation, and any sort of modern commodities were far from their grasps. It was co...

Need Volunteers [Newspaper Article] — Collage — 7 March 1977

Need Volunteers by Doxie McCoy There are 12 black children in the Boston College Campus School that need your help. The Campus School located in Roberts Center is a nongraded, academic setting for 70 multi-handicapped youngsters from ages 4-21. Many of these youngsters have some degree of mental retardation, some are physically handicapped (wheelchair confined), and others are mildly to moderately emotionally disturbed. Students presently volunteer in the Pulse program to aid the handicapped students, obtaining three credits. But there is a need for big brothers and sisters for the dozen black children attending the school. These children live in Boston with their families and also live in a home, Fernald for disturbed children. They are funloving, intelligent youngsters that need friends. They are unable to relate to their normal peers fully because of their handicaps, but are feeling, friendly kids who need love. A big brother or sister who is black and could possibly relate to th...

Time at Fisk is Rewarding [Newspaper Article] — Collage — 7 March 1977

Time at Fisk is Rewarding by Luke F. Blaize Black people in this country have a crying need for a tradition through which “we can trace our roots,” a former President of the Black Students’ Forum (BSF) asserts. An institution like Fisk University helps to fill this need. “It is precisely that reason and many more, that institutions such as Fisk University must be maintained at all cost,” said Miss Tracy Jenkins, who returned recently from Fisk University, where she spent a semester studying. According to Miss Jenkins, blacks in this country do not have a geneology, “because we were not allowed to keep records.” But some black institutions, notably Fisk University, were privileged to preserve some of the gem, so vital to black survival. Founded in 1863, Fisk University has been to blacks what Harvard is to the rest of America. “And not just any black attends Fisk,” Miss Jenkins said. Hence, like Harvard, only the well-to-do (blacks) attended Fisk. But unlike Harvard, Fisk did not hav...

Orleans Does the Disco Thing [Newspaper Article] — Collage — 7 March 1977

Orleans Does the Disco Thing by Althea Purnell New Orleans is well known as a city of enjoyment, and the “La Chat Botte,” the number one disco, is keeping this reputation consistent. Virtually every city is establishing a disco center. New York has it's Lucifers, Atlanta has its Cisco, and New Orleans has its La Chat Botte. Located at the corner of London Avenue and North Galvez Street, this number one disco packs approximately four to five thousand people per week and it has only just ■begun. The Botte, as it is sometimes called, is not solely disco, with its disc jockeys Patrice Clayton .and Henry Smity on Friday and Saturday evenings. The Botte has variety; on Thursdays, a jazz evening with WBOK’s former jazzman, A1 Gourier and Wednesdays and Sundays, Curtis “Whistleman” Miller turning a few oldies to set the mello party mood. Earl Robertson and Dalton Green, both established accoun- tants, are the proud owners of the La Chat Botte. It is evident that these two Loyola University ...

Expand Your Mind [Newspaper Article] — Collage — 7 March 1977

Expand Your Mind by Lenez McGhee Expand your mind as the minority student program presents “Expansions” every Monday evening from 6:30 to 7:30 on WZBC FM, 90.3. The hostess of this combination talk and music show is Tracy Jenkins, a vibrant and loquacious communication major here at BC. Tracy wittingly combined the themes of black history and Valentine’s Day on the first show. As the month of February is nationally dedicated to Black History, Tracy imparted information of reknowned men and women who have added to the advancement and achievements of black people. Her special guest Monroe (Bud) Moseley, director of the Minority Student Programs, discussed the activities hosted by the minority program in honor of the history of black people as well as his optimism for the minority program in general. Discussion of black history was accompanied by a few original poetry readings by Brother Luke Blaize, and a melody of black love songs in commemoration of Valentine’s Day. Another orator o...

Purlie is Victorious [Newspaper Article] — Collage — 7 March 1977

Purlie is Victorious by Lenez McGhee After several weeks of diligent and hard work, the BC production of Purlie was a success as it was presented for the first time last Wednesday in the McElroy Student Lounge. Never before has Ossie Davis’s Purlie been portrayed with such “absolute Ethiopian perfection” save of course the original broad way smash. One would readily concur that Melba Moore couldn’t have done a better job than the talented Elaine Hall as well as the fantastic music and acting ability portrayed by her mate Purlie (Reginald Montgomery). And surely the acting of Ol’Cap’n (Peter Siragusa) could have been surpassed only by a professional and even he would have a tough act to follow. Other deserving front stage talents were roles played by Burnell Jones, Kenniaah Samuel, Janelle Douglas, and musically inclined music director and actor Phil Cosgrove. There is no doubt that the hard work of the entire cast was evident in this exultant production. The actors were poised and v...

Letters t Letters reader’s forum Mid-term Blues [Newspaper Article] — Collage — 7 March 1977

Letters t Letters reader’s forum Mid-term Blues Bryan G. Laws I would like to speak out against the rush of exams at mid-term. Each time mid-term comes around, it seems that there is a multitude of haggard students studying frantically before an exam. Each one is dependent upon the outcome of the grade, whether or not the subject is related to the future of the student. I would much rather have a series of quizzes during the course of the year to realize the knowledge that I have gained and for confidence in the exams to come. Instead, we have six weeks of studying the content of the course, and then we get word that the midterm will be tomorrow. That is when everyone in class begins to cover six weeks of hurried, haggard material, whether or not we have anything to do with it in the near future. Why is it like this? Could it be to the advantage of the professor and the students if there were a steady flow of quizzes rather than a merciless onslaught? Wouldn't the class be cut short...

Keeping Priorities Straight [Newspaper Article] — Collage — 7 March 1977

Keeping Priorities Straight Bonita Grose Now that we know from whence we came (thanks to Roots), let’s not remain content and not realize where we are going. It is true that our struggle was a long and victorious one, but such is not the success story of our sisters and brothers who are still struggling in South Africa. We young black Americans, by way of Africa, have come a long way thanks to our parents, grandparents and African ancestors. Remember the pain that they have suffered. With the education, skill and potential earning power that we have as future black professionals it is imperative that we position ourselves in this world and use our “collective” influence to help shape the future of South Africa. Before you sign that employment agreement with Company XYZ, research their international records to see if it is one of those multinational corporations operating in South Africa and contributing to the exploitation of our sisters and brothers. If this is the case than we as ...

BSFSets New Structure Toward New Directions [Newspaper Article] — Collage — 21 March 1977

BSFSets New Structure Toward New Directions by Alice McCrory On Saturday night. March sth, the Black Student Forum sponsored a Crown Heights Affair Concert. The event took place at the Harriet Tubman House located on Columbus Avenue in Boston. This, the first event of the year sponsored by the BSF, was both a financial and a social success. The success of the concert could lie with the fact that the BSF has altered its formation. This year the structure of the Black Student Forum has changed somewhat in format. Under the direction of Forum president Terrence E. Gibel and Vice President Adualsalam Omer, the forum now consists of what is known as a cabinet. The cabinet is constructed of seven posts with individuals heading each post. The departments are titled as such: Minister of Finance, Minister of University Affairs, Minister of Student Affairs, Minister of Cultural Development, Minister of Community Relations, Minister of Information and Communications, and the position of Consul...

Brickhouse Seeks To Unify [Newspaper Article] — Collage — 21 March 1977

Brickhouse Seeks To Unify by Doxie McCoy George Brickhouse believes he is a strong leader who can unite all groups of the Boston College community. Running as a write-in candidate in the UGBC presidential race this Wednesday and Thursday, he hopes to create a unified student government if elected. Why is he running? After surveying the presidential candidates, he felt that none of them were attempting to represent the entire student body. One catalyst in his decision to run was a statement made by one candidate, Frank Hubbard. Hubbard made a statement referring to the Black Talent Program. The Program is no longer in existence and Brickhouse believes the statement showed his lack of genuine interest and knowledge. “The only time candidates are interested in minorities is when they want their votes,” he declared. Brickhouse has served in several capacities at BC. As Executive Assistant for Student Affairs under the present UGBC administration, he acted as a troubleshooter, attempting...

Black Studies Conference Articulates Ideas [Newspaper Article] — Collage — 21 March 1977

Black Studies Conference Articulates Ideas by David Foster and H. Richard Cooper There are a number of problems confronting minority students at predominately white institutions of higher education. Among these problems are shrinking enrollments, limited Financial assistance, and high attrition rates. It is improtant to understand that increased minority enrollments and abundant Financial assistance were a direct result of the civil rights movement of the 50’s and 60’s. It is also important to understand that Black Studies emerged as a result of student demands for a relevant education. There is a direct relationship between minority enrollments, black studies programs, and the rate of change in conditions of minority people. Against this backdrop, it seems ironic that in 1977, there are still those who ask: “What’s black studies?” David Foster, class of 1980, and H. Richard Cooper, Black Studies faculty member, attended the First Annual Convention of the National Council for Black ...

C - I would like to work in some kind of setting, in anurbanarea with young disadvantaged children, because I feel at that stage, they are at their learning point. When you’re working with little ones, especially black children, my people, that is where they begin! (Laugh). It’s the beginning of everything and in some sort of day-care center with something special, they can benefit since most of our children aren’t able to go to any type of nursery school or good schools like a white family can afford.
