- This November 14, 1967, article from The Carolinian, the student newspaper of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) discusses media coverage of the Black power Forum held at UNCG November 1-3, 1967, specifically that of the Greensboro Daily News and Raleigh News and Observer. The article by news editor Rowena Morrison accuses the newspapers of not reporting the story competently or objectively, and of not linking the UNCG forum to the greater Black Power movement. In addition, the newspapers are admonished for concentrating on the fact that attendees were largely black and male while the university's students were largely white and female. Morrison also submitted letters to the editors of the newspapers in question. The conference, sponsored by the UNCG Student Government Association featured numerous speakers including activist Howard Fuller, and generated considerable controversy statewide.
