EVA HOLMES SU Alumnus Gives Slide Presentation Mrs. Eva Holmes, an alumnus of Win ston-Salem State University recently visited the campus to give a slide pre sentation on Africa. Mrs. Holmes, who had a six-week tour of selected African countries, toured Ghana, Sierra Leone, and Nigeria. During an interview with Mrs. Holmes about her travels, she pointed out that she felt Ghana was the most developed of the countries she visit ed. She stated that in Ghana emphasis is on the “one-for-one" method of educating the country; that is, for every one person who has received an opportunity to be educated that person assumes the re sponsibility of training another. She also indicated during her discussion of Ghana that there the emphasis is on giving the male the first opportunity to receive an education. While in Sierra Leone Mrs. Holmes was impressed that 2'-> year old children were reading and six year olds were do ing long division. She said that there the school system was analogous to the strict British educational system. W'hen asked how the Africans treated the blacks w'ho were in the group she traveled with Mrs. Holmes stated that contrary to what many American blacks say they were w'armly received. She further emphasized that teachers in the African countries rank with prime ministers and other high government officials. Forty blacks were in the group of 250 people who toured the three coun tries. Mrs. Holmes, a Winston-Salem native, was asked why she chose California as a place to work. She stated that while she was an eighth grader at Kimberly Park School her teacher told the class that California was a “land of golden op portunity." Consequently upon graduation from college Mrs. Holmes still recalling what her geography teacher had said went to Los Angeles after teaching for a brief period in Columbia, South Carolina. When asked if she had any difficulty securing employment in the Los Angeles school system Mrs. Holmes said that what you get at State in education will enable you to make it anywhere.

Little was one of the speakers sponsored by Up ward Bound as part of a weekly forum held every W'ednesday night at 7:00 p.m. Little is a former WSSU student; how ever, he stated he left school before grad uation. Since that time, he has worked with the Panthers for five years. Little said his concern of the evening was the uplifting of blacks as a whole. He also stated that blacks have progressed be cause of collective struggle. Little told UB that he attended the trial of Ben Chavious in Wilmington a couple of weeks ago. He said, “The same judge that gave him 20-30 years in jail, ac quitted him also." He cited this incident as an example of the struggle of some of our black brothers and sisters. He also mentioned that other greats needed to be remembered such as Malcolm X, and Dr. Martin Luther King, who have also participated in the struggle. Little told UB to remember "freedom cannot be bought, you have to take it. The white man will use other niggers to control you." Little further states that “students cannot aspire to go to college four years while other blacks are catching hell." Little also spoke about Joseph Waddell, a former panther who was illiterate, that spent most of his time helping addicts. Waddell died in prison in 1972. Little sited Waddell’s fate as an example that North Carolina has more political prisons than any other state in America. Little stated that the slogan "Do your own thing" is one of the most counter revolutionary slogans ever created be cause blacks cannot afford to do their own thing. Little says “Go to school, get a skill, but get that skill first and fore most to serve your people." Little mentioned the ambulance crisis in Winston-Salem. In doing so he gave reference to a black woman that died several weeks ago because she did not have $20.00 to pay for ambulance service. The Black Panther Party will implement a new free ambulance service for our people on July 8, 1973. Aside from free ambulance service they also sponsor a free transportation program for people to visit their loved ones in the hospitals and prisons. Also they sponsor free food and clothing. Before closing, Little recommended that blacks read the fol lowing books: To Die For The People Comrade Huey P. Newton Blood In My Eye George Jackson Lastly, Little asked that blacks read the Bible, especially the 25th chapter of Saint Matthews. Little said this chapter talks about the same things and goals the Black Panther Party has. Little closed by requesting that all students interested in becoming involved with community service to call the Black Panther Party's office at 727-9652. WHAT'S HAPPENING IN TC?
