UNIVERSITY OF RHODE ISLAND

AFRO-AMERICAN SOCIETY


As Blacks, we do not look at ourselves as stu dents, in the limited sense of the word, but rather, as people who are continually redefining ourselves to that which is most expedient. We, as people, have come to an educational system, which in turn shows no difference from the society that it is a part of; to be subject to the same acts of racism which that society has shown for two hundred years. In order to survive and grow on a predomi nately white campus, the Black Student Union has to establish a power-base on that campus. But in order to establish a power base, there has to be active participation and commitment by a major ity of the Black members of the college commu nity; and not only a commitment by the students, but by the faculty and administration as well. In order for students to increase these goals they must search out faculty and administrators; they must ask and answer questions which can give di rection to the movement. And it is not enough to organize the Black campus members, but also nearby campuses and communities. These major concepts, coined by Don L. Lee as the Develop ment of an Ethnic Identity, typify the way the Afro-American Society feels in reference to the University of Rhode Island. We find ourselves caught in a vacuum, trying to make the University live up to the goals it set for itself. We find ourselves trying to educate the socalled educated. We are looking for an alternative a system which consist to this dying system ently believes that education is our passport to the us take won't let future, yet advantage of opportu nities to get that education. Everywhere we turn we have to deal with the blatant inequities of the system. As racism is a part of the University foundation, it is hard not to view how the admissions policies are carried out. At no time can the inadequate University recruit ing procedure bring answers to all your questions. In trying to help the University over and over again we have learned that inadequate is putting the position mildly. In an attempt to help the

University, al the end of April, 1972, the AfroAmerican Society organized a High School Day to let interested students find out about the UnP versity. This only points to the fact that the University is not actively involved in the current recruitment program for Blacks. Year after year, this Univer sity continues to lean on the Talent Development Program for security, but this will nol solve the problem. S.P.T.D. is hmiled to Rhode Island Res idents and the University is in dire need of out-ofstate Black students. The out of^state enrollment probably numbers about fifteen blacks and the athletic program lakes up that number. To further illustrate the University's racist pol icy, there is the question of Black Studies. Though I admit that many black studies programs are be ing re-evaluated all over the country, at least other parts of the country have Black Study Pro grams. Judging by the University of Rhode Is land, black people went another way when Co lumbus discovered America. In effect, whal I am saying is that if we left our plight at the mercy of the University, we would exist as physical beings,

nothing

more.

Yet after a long struggle on the part of the blacks, the University finally established an inter disciplinary Black-Studies Program for under

graduates. Too bad they won'l let anyone know about il. Though the Program did not take effect unlil February, 1971 there has been ample time for its inclusion in the 1972 Catalogue. But still the University has not sent out any information concerning the program at all. This all brings up the fact of racism, which is what we were talking about to begii) with. Just because you have colleges and universities doesn't mean that you have educalion. The colleges and

universities in the American educational system skillfully used to mis-educate. The kind of ig and greed that the American educational system adheres to simply illustrates how messed up the system really is. However, if the siudents on this campus wouldn't just accept the analysis are

norance


which has been presented to them, but would take it upon themselves to research the problem of rac ism, they would never be able to bring about a solution to the racism on this campus as long as they rely on the University to do it. There are some who will say that my attitude is radical, and that I am practicing reverse racism, whatever that is. In reality these are the same eUte intellectuals who uphold racist practices day in and day out. It is these same people who are re sponsible for a lot of the problems which exist to day, not the radicals. However, whites who are sincere don't accom plish anything by joining the Afro-American Soci ety and trying to make it integrated. White stu dents who are sincere should organize among themselves and figure out some strategy to break down the prejudice that exists on the University of Rhode Island campus. This is where they can function most effectively and intelligently in the white organization itself; this has not been done. We realize that educalion has served its pur the training and qualifying of people to pose fit into jobs for the perpetuation of a system which has historically exploited and oppressed the In the process, many masses of Black people. blacks who have survived the educational system, have been raped of their identity and creativity, while the masses of black people have remained the powerless pawns of an educational system which is incapable of meeting their needs. As, people, if we are to rely on an institution, it should expose us to the totality of our history and role in human experience. They should help us to learn aboul where we came from, and where we are now, in order to help us determine exactly where we are going; and they should help to de velop us in creativity, knowledge, and the skills to get us there. RIGHT ON! Thomas Ellison, Pres.

You told me once That Httle girls Grow into women. I didn't understand. Your hands were small then. And everything you said Could fit into a single room.

Remember when we played house And you would dress up and bum the brownies? I was a doctor that year, And very busy. All that was a long time ago. I look at you sometimes when you sleep And smile at your eyelids and your curls. The ribbon around your hair Makes me think That women grow slowly into little girls.
