Description: This November 10, 1967, article from The Carolinian, the student newspaper of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) comments on the Black Power Forum held at UNCG November 1-3, 1967. Reporter Cassandra Williams notes what she considers the major points of the forum and of the movement: (1) the irrelevance of education to problems at hand, (2) that action is needed by poor people black and white, (3) that blacks must organize, and (4) that they should not allow themselves to be exploited. The conference, sponsored by the UNCG Student Government Association featured numerous speakers including activist Howard Fuller, and generated considerable controversy statewide.
