Description: This October 10, 1967, article from The Carolinian, the student newspaper of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) reports on a panel dicussion held as part of the Black Power Forum held at UNCG November 1-3, 1967. The discussion, which included panelists Lucien Stone, James Turner, Howard Fuller, and Ann Atwater, focused on urban renewal and the idea that it was an inappropriate response to “ghetto revolt.” There was criticism that communities affected by urban renewal were not a part of the planning process, as well as discussion of the segregationist aspects of the program. The conference, sponsored by the UNCG Student Government Association featured numerous speakers including Fuller, and generated considerable controversy statewide.
