TranscriptConcerned Black Students to Meet

All interested black students are invited to a maas organizational meeting of Concerned Black Students at 8 p.m. Wednesday in Davis Auditorium of the Wham Education Building.
A committee headed by M. Chuck Markham, a graduate student, has issued the
following statement of purpose:
"The time of crisis is here; the time of need Is here; the lime of help is now. If you are anxious to do something positive, constructive and meaningful, C.B.S. (Concerned Black Students) solicits your presence and welomes you. We call on graduate students, doctoral and master's degree candidates. We call on undergraduate students who are capable and Intelligent.
"We wane committed individuals who are mature and willing -to use their mental ability In a calm, but effective manner.
"We of C.B.S. believe the true expression of power Is of 'Brain Power.' The situation which has recently occurred must not be written In the record as a tragic failure. The days of 'sacrificial lambs' have passed. Some brother cannot be forced to pay an extreme price for an expression which was of honorable intent.
"Indifference, inertlaand compliance on your pan set the stage for future years. It could have been your younger sister or brother who participated in a similar action. If you stand still, dismiss yourself, then you are brainwashed.
"By passively accepting this state of affairs, you are confirming every lie, every suspicion, every doubt about the intelligence of Black Students.
"We submit this is untrue. We can use our minds as well as any human. Remember, whether you are in New York, Chicago or Carbondale, you will always be Black- But whether this will be perceived
as negative remains with you. "You cannot sit and let people malign you as a group, nor indict a Black Srudeni without obtaining ifae facts. "...C.B.S. is not looking for "Black Power'' advocatea but for "Brain Power" advocates."
