Students who gathered in the Think Tank at the Tyler Haynes Commons on Friday afternoon heard stories about the absurdity, pain and sheer terror of growing up in Birmingham, Ala., at the height of the Civil Rights movement from two professors who witnessed it first-hand.
The University of Richmond's Board of Trustees have unanimously approved the proposed five-year strategic plan, clearing the way for administrators to immediately begin molding university policy and offering programs to reach the plan's five goals.
Sunday night, Umoja Gospel Choir sang, sororities Delta Sigma Theta and Alpha Kappa Alpha stepped and three dance teams - NGOMA, Asian Beat and D-squad - performed to a packed house in the North Court Reception Room. I had never before seen all of these student organizations in the same place at the same time and honestly it almost felt like I was at another school. This night coincided with a program called Multicultural Overnight Visitation Experience (MOVE) that welcomes prospective students from all over Virginia to spend a night on out campus.

Here's the plan: We drive 16 hours from Richmond to Kansas City from 5:30 p.m. on Thursday to about 10:30 a.m. the next day. My mom and dad weren't too wild about the idea and both told me that not going was a completely legitimate alternative. Maybe we should have reevaluated the whole idea, but somehow by the grace of God three news junkies made it to the Associated Collegiate Press National College Media Convention alive.
The racial disparity in health care today has direct roots in the historical treatment of African Americans, bioethicist Harriet Washington said Thursday.
In 1982, Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley was poised to become the first African-American governor in history, leading his rival by 9 points or higher by some estimates. Come election day, he lost the race -- giving birth to the so-called Bradley Effect phenomenon. The question in 2008 is whether such an effect may be over-inflating Senator Obama's lead over John McCain in pre-election polls showing him leading by an average of 8 points. What historical trends and recent research on race as a factor--not to mention the record number of new registrations -- lead us to believe is that the Bradley Effect will not be a factor against Senator Obama in the outcome of this election. Furthermore, the so-called Facebook Effect may mean a net-gain for the Senator from Illinois.
Changing peer culture on sexual respect at the University of Richmond, or on any college campus, is not easy, but it absolutely needs to be done. The recent e-mail incident in combination with the revelation of another e-mail today that includes misogynist and expressly racist remarks, threatens to marginalize and silence anyone who is not a white male on this campus.
The city of Richmond's four mayoral candidates told a crowd in the Alice Haynes Room on Wednesday night that university students had a vital role in shaping the city's future.
The 2008 presidential race isn't the only Nov. 4 election students registered to vote in Richmond will help decide. They'll also be voting for the city's new mayor under a new voting system.
Another act of discrimination struck the University of Richmond on Wednesday after a student from the T.C. Williams School of Law discovered swastikas sketched into a picnic table, university officials said.
In the midst of the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression, the conservative base has had the same old knee-jerk reaction as years past: outdated and just plain wrong. John McCain said last week on the stump, in more or less words, "...the quickest way to turn a recession into a depression is by raising taxes." It's time that the Republicans grow up out of their Reagan-esque image of the world. First of all, Barack Obama will not raise taxes on 95% PERCENT OF ALL AMERICANS. John McCain and the average Bill O'Reily follower who regurgitates talking points likes to argue, "Barack Obama will raise your taxes." Well, no matter how many times you lie, it's not going to be true, but the sad part is that some Americans start to believe this non-sense. Well I'm here to say, you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. The American people are tired of these gutter politics. Has anyone else noticed how much race has crept up in the past weeks? Every news channel, especially Fox news, is posing the question: "Is American ready for a black president?" At McCain rallies people are yelling out "terrorist" and "kill him" when Obama is referenced. Granted, McCain did confront a supporter hinting at this garbage a few day's ago, but it's clear he's doing the bare minimum to prevent this election from getting dirty, and ultimately doing very little to keep this country from becoming bitterly divided. Do we want our next president to embrace erratic, child-like, and capricious leadership tactics?
