Black Studies does not need saving and it is quite vibrant at Temple University as a result of the re-organization of the undergraduate and graduate programs; in effect, Temple has just re-asserted its leadership in Black Studies by celebrating 25 years of the first doctoral program in the nation and consequently few students in the program and none of the faculty members approved or supported the protest.I fault each and every one of these negroes for not taking their considerable talent to any HBCU and build up THE authoritative black studies program. Seems to me that would be the "nationalistic" thing to do. Of course given that there has been no mention of Garvey in the comment made by Asante, I guess it's proof that none of the people involved are really about building anything black from the top down or bottom up. ALL of these folks are more interested in their spot in the white space. Carry on with that. It is, at the very least, entertainment. But I'll take them more seriously if they show up, somewhat permanently in Jackson Ms.

Asante and Monteiro Still Fighting....
Yeah, these two folks, apparently along with Cornel West and Marc Lamont Hill are still fighting over how best to serve Temple University. Really.
