Title

Black Cats' Aims, Advice Praised
The Collegian

Description

"Black Cats' Aims, Advice Praised" is an installment of Jim Winders' column, which was frequently found in The Collegian student newspaper and "attempt[ed] to establish an editorial forum on contemporary issues", typically taking a liberal stance. Winders wrote about the formation of the Black Community Action Team (Black Cats) by a group of black students in Houston, Texas. He wrote, "They are where the action is because they are concerned about the bigotry, prejudice and paranoia which pervades American culture today." The article tied the Black Cats movement to Richmond College students by discussing the ignorance of many Richmond College students and the lack of communication between black and white communities.
