The Black Arts Festival has come and gone and the Black
Students Union would like to take this opportunity to thank
publicly all those people who gave of their time and expertise in the
planning development and execution of our week's events.
Our Black Arts Week proved to be quite a success. Most of the
events were well attended and proved to be both informative and
entertaining. While our principal concern was not one of financial
gain, our B.S.U. scholarship fund gained significantly as a result of
our endeavor. While we have no way of knowing the total extent to
which the Capitol Campus Community gained as a result of the
experience of a Black Arts Festival, we feel that we can say with
certainty, that thru the efforts of the 8.5. U., The Campus has gained
significantly, if only in having such a distinguished guest as the Hon.
Joseph P. Rhodes, Dr. Donald Henderson, Assoc. Provost, Univ. of
Pittsburgh and Ida Minnie, chairwoman of an advisory commission
set up by State Sect. of Education Pittenger visit our campus.
All of those students, faculty and administrators who were
present at any or all of these speakers' discussions know that the
information rendered has serious implications not only for Capitol
Campus, but for any other college campus as well.
While our impressive list of speakers contributed greatly to the
overall success of the wee. We cannot forget the overiding success of
such events as the Harrisburg Independent Academy Drama group
and their production of "Mikes other Love", The Talent Show, on
Thursday night, April 5, The Show and Danee, Friday, April 6th,
with the S.C. L.C. Freedom Choir and Band and the Southern
chicken Dinner and Concert with Robert Rengatta and Rufus
Harley, Saturday, April 7th, Let's not forget the Art Exhibit that ran
throughout the week in the B.C.A.C. Several people wanted to buy
some of the work that was on display, however, unfortunately most
of the peices were not for sale.
So in closing the B.S.U. gives their appreciation and thanks to
Provost McDermott and George Dressler. To Dean Grimm and the
office of Student Affairs for moral support. To the Public
Information Officer, The Capitolist and WZAP who did a fantastic job
in publicity. To the Academic Services Office and the Special Project
Officer Mr. R. Segree and Housing and Food Services for helping to
make the visiting brothers and sisters from Allegeny County
Community College stay here at Capitol a pleasant one and to Pat
Murphy who helped place some of those students. To Instructional
Services, we give thanks for all the equipment we borrowed for the
Talent Show the Show and Dance and the concert. to Twyla Brown,
we give thanks for her initial efforts with the Talent Show and to
Mark, Tim and Dan and Tom, we give thanks also. We cannot forget
our advisor, Dr. Richards; Prof. Gilpin and Prof. La Grone who did
an outstanding job on the art exhibit, and, who all three during the
entire 6 months of the Festivals development gave us much of their
time, energy and support. Last, but not least, we can't forget Jerry
South. He gave moral support and direction when it was needed also
more often than not he was there when we needed him.
I personally would like to thank all the members of the B.S.U. for
their personal contributions to the success of the Week. Although it
may take only a few people to plan an event, in the final stretch it
takes everybody to pull some of the weight to make an event like
this a success.
I know that next years Black Arts Festival, if this one is to be any
indication of the benefits such an event can have, can'only be bigger
and better than this years art festival. I expect that it will explore
even more dynamic modes of Black Expression.
