Almost 300 angry students converged
on Chancellor Paul Hardin's Country
Club Road home late Thursday night,
chanting "No justice, no peace," de
manding a free-standing black cultural
center and saying they had taken their
grassroots movement to new heights.
The march and rally both were noisy,
but there was no violence. Accompa
nied by BCC Director Margo Crawford,
who has been at odds with Hardin since
the outset of the movement, the group
marched in 53 rows of four people, and
leaders were connected using radios.
University Police officers, who ar
rived about 45 minutes after the stu
dents, broke up the gathering shortly
"We made the point that, (although)
we're in the midst of people saying we
need to negotiate, we're not negotiat
ing," said Denise Matthewson, a leader
in the student coalition supporting the
BCC. "This shows we're going to get
what we say."
Hardin was out of town, although
lights were on in the house. A machine
answered a phone call at midnight.
The group marched to Hardin ' s home
following a spontaneous gathering at
1 1 p.m., about an hour after the end of a
planned but emotional speakout. In
tending to camp out at the chancellor's
house, located at 306 Country Club Rd.,
some members of the group brought
sleeping bags and blankets.
AJter arriving at the house, the stu
dents played a tape of Arrested
Development's "Raining Revolution"

floor windows. They chanted for a free-

Student Union directors at uni
versities across the nation are imple
menting stricter policies for dances
held at their unions in an effort to
curb violence in and around the build
ings during union parties.
Don Luse, UNC union director,
said UNC's new Great Hall party
policy was somewhere in the middle
compared to policies of other uni
versities. "The biggest question is the guest
situation," Luse said. "A lot of
schools have limited late-night
events to only their students. In talk
ing with colleagues across the coun
try, most people believe it is not
university students causing prob
lems." The UNC policy states that only
UNC students and guests with a cur
rent college I.D. may attend Great

Martha Blood, student union di
rector at the University of Texas at
Arlington, said UT-A officials and
student groups had worked together
to create a safer dance policy.
: "We were noting an increase in
acts of violence that were occurring
adjacent to the campus and in the
parking lots, and some acts that were
occurring inside the college union,"
Last spring, UT-A union officials
implemented a policy designed to
keep the parties under control and to
prevent as many violent acts as pos
sible, she said. "The instigators of
the violence were not university stu

area," Blood said.

"We're taking it to a higher level, and
there' s no turning back," said Tim Smith,
a founder of the Black Awareness Coun
cil, after leaving Hardin's driveway.
Two police officers approached the
group at about 11:45 p.m. after the
group already had taken over Hardin's
entire circular driveway. Three more
police cars arrived minutes later, al
though the students had been standing
outside the house for almost an hour.
Crawford stood in front of the offic
ers as they walked toward the group,
explaining the scene. "We have come
for justice," she said. "This is state
property," she told the officers.
Officer A.J. Womble suggested the
group approach Hardin in a less aggres
sive manner. "He needs to be disturbed
in his office," the officer said.
As an indication of the event's spon
taneity, police officers near the Pit didn't
know what was happening. "I bet it's
some kind of initiation," a University
Police officer said as the group passed
by her near the Student Union.
Crawford said she had been expect
ing such a demonstration for months.
"The students get very emotional," she
said before the march. "They talked,
they cried and prayed."
The BCC director, whose job some
students have said is in jeopardy, said
she was nervous. "I've said this 50
times to every administrator," she said.
"The students are going to take this to
another level. Every administrator I have
talked to except the chancellor has said
they don't know why this has been
allowed to escalate."
Crawford said she wasn't concerned
about job security. "This isn't a planta
tion," she said. "It's a university. We
pride ourselves in freedom of speech."

whom students have named the BCC,

At the end of an hour-and-45-minute
meeting with state and University offi
cials, members of the UNC housekeep
ers movement said uniting with low
pay grade employees of other state uni
versities was the next step in a fight for
higher wages and better working condi
tions. The meeting, which was closed to
the press, included state legislators, N.C.
personnel officials and University ad
ministrators. Housekeeper movement members
said they hoped uniting with employees
at other state universities would put
more pressure on the General Assem
bly. "The legislators more or less under
stand where we're coming from," said
Marsha Tinnen, oneof the leadersof the
housekeepers' movement. "They un
derstand that we need to pull in lower
paid employees across the state, and
especially at other UNC schools."
Three members of Orange County's
state delegation state Reps. Anne
Barnes and Joe Hackney and state Sen.
Howard Lee attended the meeting
along with Wayne Jones, UNC vice
chancellor forbusiness and finance, and
Laurie Charest, associate vice chancel
lor for human resources. An official
from the state personnel office also at
tended. Prior to the start of the meeting,
Barnes asked members of the press to
leave. "This is a delicate issue," she
said. "We just want to make sure that

tions for approach

Barnes said. "We
wanted to try to put some framework
together so we could reach out and get
support from other campuses.
Barnes said it was important to re
member that the UNC housekeepers,
many of whom work for below poverty
level wages, were not the only UNC
system employees suffering.
"This can't just be a Chapel Hill
issue," she said. "This meeting is just
the beginning of what must be done all
over the state."
Lee echoed the sentiment, citing the
need to involve employees from many
parts of the state in any effort to get a
General Assembly resolution passed.
"We were able to suggest (in the
meeting) that the effort needs to be
more than just Chapel Hill," he said. "If
and when a proposal is made (to the
General Assembly) it will have to be a
statewide effort, not just a local one."
Lee said that while he sympathized
with the housekeepers' anger at their
situation, they must be careful not to
alienate UNC administrators.
"The chancellor is not the problem,"
he said. 'This campus is not the prob
lem. There are 1 6 other campuses in the
system that need to be convinced."

Although the housekeepers had in
vited any interested students to attend
the meeting, only a few attended.
Tinnen said the low student turnout
was more a sign of bad timing rather
than student apathy.
"A lot of students are new to campus
or had class," Tinnen said. "We do have
a lot of students supporting us.

Barnes, Hackney and Lee all said
they would support another meeting
with the housekeepers.
"I would support some kind of follow-up
meeting, whether a direct meet
ing or a subcommittee-type thing,"
Barnes said. "We still need to sit back
and decide exactly how to achieve what
we want to achieve."
Tinnen, speaking for the group of
housekeepers, said she too would sup

Robert Stone, who lives in Durham
and attends Rutgers University, said he
was upset about Hardin's reactions to
the BCC proposal. "It's sad," he said.
"It just shows how slow things are, in
terms of progress."
Rutgers, which has a free-standing
black cultural center, does not suffer
from racial separation, Stone said.
After the protest at Hardin's house,
the group marched back to the Pit in a
line that stretched from the Institute of
Government to Fetzer Gym, where sev
eral coalition leaders spoke to them
about the success of the evening.
"Y'all can consider tonight part of a
huge success," Matthewson said. 'This
is a success because we were able to
keep it under control. We didn't even
get a citation for disturbing the peace."
BAC member Smith told the crowd
that the events were just the first step.
"This don't mean shit if we stop now,"
he said. At one point during the march
back to the Pit, Smith quoted Arrested
Development, shouting: "It's raining
revolution, and I'm soaking wet."
Crawford, who was driven from
Hardin's house back to the Pit, said the
event was like nothing she had ever
seen. "This is what Dr. King envi
sioned," she said. "This is direct action
like I've never seen it.
"What these students know and what
the entire community is about to find
out, is that you cannot have peace if you
do not have justice."

Pit, students began singing "We Shall

Michelle Thomas responded: "Stop

representative from the N.C. Press As
"It's unfortunate that the decision to
bar the press was made," said Katherine
White, administrative assistant to NCP A
legal counselor Hugh Stevens. "But it
did not violate the open meetings law."
Barnes told members of the press she
was concerned about delicate issues
appearing in the media.
"We might get into some discussion
of strategy that we don't want getting
into the paper," Barnes said before the
meeting. "This is a delicate subject."
In attendance at the meeting were
Barnes, Rep. Joe Hackney, D-Orange,
and state Sen. Howard Lee, D-Orange.
UNC administrators Laurie Charest,
vice chancellor for human resources,
and Wayne Jones, vice chancellor for
business and finance, attended the meet
ing with about 10 housekeepers and
about 10 of their supporters.
Lee, who arrived late to the meeting,

BAC member Jimmy Hitchcock told
the group that if they were truly dedi

weather to fight for their cause.
"We as a people need to learn to love

of about 100.
