Cornell Daily Sun – NAACP Holds Meeting
Political columns yield Ho Plaza rally to ‘unite’ students
122 Rockefeller was packed to the brim with students and two faculty members who gathered for an emergency meeting of Cornell’s chapter of the NAACP at 5 p.m. yesterday. The meeting was held in response to two recent articles — one regarding an incident which occurred after last semester’s Ludacris concert appearing in the Cornell Review, and the other regarding affirmative action in the Cornell American. During the meeting, participants planned a rally to take place today at 11:30 on Ho Plaza in reaction to the recent publications. In addition, a petition was passed around requesting that both newspapers be denied funding from the Student Assembly Finance Commission.
