Scott Stops Here On Tour
February 6, 1968
Jeannie Daniels was a student at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and reporter for The Carolinian in 1967.
This February 6, 1968, article from The Carolinian, the student newspaper of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) discusses a visit by Lieutenant Governor Robert Scott to the UNCG campus on January 12, 1968. Scott discussed, among other things, the potential for state-sanctioned censorship at the university in light of the recent Black Power Forum held at UNCG November 1-3, 1967. Scott urged “discretion in these matters” but noted that he had opposed a speaker ban law. The Black Power Forum, sponsored by the UNCG Student Government Association featured numerous speakers including activist Howard Fuller, and generated considerable controversy statewide. Scott had made several negative comments about the conference at the time.
