After Meeting with Harvard Admin on ‘Swatting’ Attack, Black Student Leaders Say Demands Remain Unanswered
Members of two new College and 'Cliffe organizations will put on a jazz and folk-singing concert at Sanders Theatre on Friday, May 19. Proceeds from the affair will go into a projected scholarship fund for Negro students who want to attend Harvard or Radcliffe.
The two societies, which received their college charters early this term, are the Radcliffe Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the Harvard Society for Minority Rights. Stanley Goldfarb '52, vice-president of the Harvard group, said last night that the concert will be the first of a series of dances, concerts, and lectures calculated "to create interest in what we're trying to do."
Three Bands Featured
Volunteering their services for the affair are trumpeter Frankie Newton and his band from the Savoy, the Crimson Stompers of Walter H. Gifford, Jr. '52, Charlie Mariano's Boptet, and Station WMEX's folk-singer, Shep Girnandez.
Tickets for the 3:30 p.m. concert will go on sale today in the dining halls of all Houses and in the Union. The organizations presenting the jam session are both affiliates of the American Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
The Society for Minority Rights had previously come out in opposition to the requirement of photographs on College applications. It complained to the Board of Admissions that constituted a discriminatory threat.
