Title

Feature "Where We Stand"

Description

In response to a racially charged protest of the production of “The Meeting,” Theatre and Dance Department Chair Walter Schoen claims that the Modlin Center for the arts is a “safe haven” for students to express themselves artistically and denounces the “ignorance and pettiness” shown by the “exhibition.” The University Players, University Dancers, professors of Theatre, and directors of the Modlin Center condemned the incident in their own words. "The Meeting" was directed by professor Chuck Mike, and is about an imaging meeting between Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X in 1965.
