B-GLAD file second suit following faraial

A complaint brought by members of

in a pre-trial hearing Sunday night, but
B-GLAD members immediately filed
Chief Justice Malcolm Turner said
he dismissed the complaint because it
was filed against former congress
speaker Tim Moore and the 73rd con

During a discussion on the prob

cultural center debate
By Thanassis Cambanis
Key figures in the black cultural cen

ment for a free-standing BCC on WTVD
11 's weekly "Reflections" program
Sunday but came out of the forum say
ing they were no closer to an agreement
on the issue.
Provost Richard McCormick, BCC
Director Margo Crawford, Student Body
Vice President Charlie Higgins and
Black Awareness Council co-founder
Tim Smith took part in the panel discus
sion, which was hosted by WTVD's
The program, recorded in front of a
studio audience Tuesday, focused on
the history of the controversy and ef
forts to reach a solution.
Higgins, who has supported Student
Body President John Moody in his ad
vocacy of a multicultural center, said he
thought the program accomplished very
little in terms of encouraging dialogue.
"The dialogue on this issue has been
taking place through the newspapers,
and that's unfortunate," he said. "Even
TV is better than talking through the
newspapers. It's a good start."
After the program, Higgins and
McCormick "chatted" with Smith and
"pleaded with him to take part in the
discussion," Higgins said.
"We made it clear to him that the
door is open," he said. "As Dr.
McCormick said, there are empty chairs
on the committee with (BAC mem
bers') names on them."
So far Smith, the BAC, members of
the coalition and members of the BCC
Advisory Board have refused to sit on
McCormick' s committee, which will
discuss various proposals and give
Chancellor Paul Hardin a final recom
mendation on the BCC issue.
Clifford Charles, an audience mem
ber and chairman of the Black Faculty
Staff Caucus, said the program was
limited by the half-hour format.
"I thought it was constructive as far
as it went," he said. "I don't think any
thing new came from this discussion. It
was a summary of things that have been
wrong congress," Turner said. "The 73rd
congress no longer exists."
B-GLAD members refiled theircom
plaint against Speaker Jennifer Lloyd
and the 74th congress at the hearing and
demanded a response to their complaint
by 5 p.m. Friday.
Turner will hear the new complaint
at a pre-trial hearing set for Oct. 4.
Lloyd, who voted against the rider in
congress last year, said she would con

Wednesday meeting before issuing a

Paschal asked Higgins to describe
student sentiment toward a free-standing
"By and large, students support ex

question is whether it should be free

Charles questioned the accuracy of
Higgins' assessment of student opin

13-8 vote endorsing a free-standing
BCC, Charles said, "Maybe the execu
tive branch is out of step with predomi

McCormick said he thought it was

University administration and the black

by the University in 1991 included
$500,000 for BCC programming and
expansion, reversing the original 1989
plan, which earmarked $2.5 million for

The student movement started in 1 99 1
as a result of this "broken promise,"
McCormick emphasized that the
money in the Bicentennial plan never
really existed. "There was a plan to
raise $2.5 million which was changed
to a plan to raise $500,000, but the
money was never there to disappear,"
Paschal showed clips of the BCC at
N.C. State University, which shares a
building with a variety of other student
organizations. She then asked Smith
why UNCs BCC could not be part of a
student union annex or a multicultural
"We're not just going to take what
we can get," Smith said. "We're going
to take what we want. A multicultural

groups on campus had stated the desire
