Paraphrase of statement to Frank Pleasants of Greensboro Record
circa November 15, 1967
James Sharbrough Ferguson
James Sharbrough Ferguson served as chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro from 1967 to 1979.
This is a note of statements apparently made by University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) Chancellor James Sharbrough Ferguson to Frank Pleasants of the Greensboro Record on November 15, 1967. The comments concern the controversial Black Power Forum held November 1-3 at UNCG and state Ferguson's belief that the forum was an educational experience and that the Black Power movement “cannot be wished away simply because it is controversial.” After publication, Ferguson received several letters of complaint and of support.
