Students prepare for 20th anniversary march
By BEN PERKOWSKI
Tar Heel Staff Writer
Civil rights, labor and peace leaders across
the nation have called for a march for "Jobs,
Peace and Freedom" to take place in Wash
ington D.C., on Aug. 27, the 20th anniversary
of the historic 1963 civil rights march.
Chuck Hennessee and Ted Johnson, campus
organizers for the event, hope to send bus-loadsi
of UNC students to Washington to commemo
rate and rejuvenate the spirit of the original
march led by Martin Luther King Jr.
Today and tomorrow, booths will be set up
in the Union to sell tickets for bus transporta
tion on the day of the march, which leaves
Chapel Hill at 5 a.m. and returns at midnight.
The tickets will cost $25, but Johnson said
that was negotiable.
"Anyone who wants to go will not be
stopped because of money," he said.
There will also be T-shirts, at a. cost of $5,
and buttons for sale at the booths. Money
raised will go directly to the local coalition,
which is paying for the bus rental. V
The first local organizational meeting about
the march was held May 29. Fred Battle, chair
person of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro 20th An
niversary Coalition, said then that promoting
the national interest would be of primary im
portance in the early stages of planning for the
"The way we figure to tie in locally," Battle
said, "is to focus first on the march on Wash
ington, and then the local issues will fall in
after that." ,
Yonnie Chapman, a member of the coordi
nating committee, said organizing coalitions
have been established all over the country
"The motion to organize this thing is really
taking place in the grassroots," he said.
There are now more than 50 people working
in the local coalition. The campus group,
which has met throughout the summer, is a
subdivision of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Coa
lition. The national coalition and hundreds of local
coalitions nationwide are working to make this
march more than just a commemoration, but
a call to the nation for the abolition of, as
King said, "the evils of racism, economic ex
ploitation and militarism." 100,000 to 200,000
people are expected to converge on the capitol
for the march.
Next Wednesday at 8 p.m. the campus coa
lition is sponsoring a cultural night in the so
cial lounge at Morrison dorm. Tickets can also
be bought there or by contacting Chuck Hen
Rhythm Alley brings jive music back to Chapel
By JOEL KATZENSTEIN
Tar Heel Arts & Features Editor
Live music may be getting another chance
at success in Chapel Hill at least if Judy
Hammond has anything to say about it.
Hammond, a local artist, plans to open a new
night club called Rhythm Alley (where Cat's
Cradle was located).
Chapel Hill has seen many live-entertainment
night clubs come and go; they, include
Town Hall, Pegasus, The Station, Stephen's
. . .after all and Cat's Cradle. According to
Stephen Barefoot, former owner of Stephen's,
the businesses have failed because Chapel Hill
has not as yet been willing to support high-
'If you only play one kind of music you'll find that your paying
audience will be very limited. ! ,

quality entertainment. Hammond hopes to
change all that with her new club. Having
lived in New York City for eight years, Ham
mond has had an excellent opportunity to de
velop a taste for good music, but she is equal
ly excited about the musical talent in the
Chapel Hill area. "It was incredible to hear
the kind of people who came through when
the clubs were doing well. People were really
sad when the places started going under,"
The sadness may turn to joy if things go
according to plan. Although she is not a busi
ness person, Hammond thinks she has some
thing special to offer. In the past, the area
night clubs have been dominated by business
men. Hammond, an artist specializing in
wood-carvings, is also a musical performer.
For the past three years she has played the
piano as a member of Sail Away Ladies, a
musical group specializing in "old time"
music. . ' , -
Because of her background in the arts
(both visual and performing), Hammond has
had the opportunity to make many valuable
contacts and learn first hand what is required
to make it in the music world. For instance,
Hammond observes that diversity is a must in
a town like Chapel Hill. Because of Chapel
Hill's size and relatively transient population,
the clubs must be willing to cater to as many
tastes as possible in order to be successful.
"If you only play one kind of music you'll
find that your paying a iience will be very
limited," Hammond saiu
To avoid making the saTie mistakes as her
predecessors, Hammond plans to have all
types of music featured at Rhythm Alley.
