Description: This October 10, 1967, article from The Carolinian, the student newspaper of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) reports on a speech by activist Howard Fuller at the Black Power Forum held at UNCG November 1-3, 1967. The conference was sponsored by the UNCG Student Government Association and generated considerable controversy statewide. In his speech, Fuller stated that blacks must have pride and consciousness, and that whites had enslaved them and taught them to hate themselves. The article also includes a box with a somewhat sarcastic note stating that The Carolinian will not feature an editorial on the subject dues to its own bias.
