Liestoppers Meeting posts Walt-in-Durham’s detailed report of the event followed by extensive commentary.
KC Johnson posts his commentary and Walt-in-Durham’s report. There’s another detailed report, this one anonymous, on KC’s post’s thread.
Carolina’s student newspaper, The Daily Tar Heel, reports on the event here. There are two comments on the thread right now, both worth reading.
JinC Regular cks summarizes:
It is amazing that she still claims that she was raped. What’s even more so is that she feels everyone is "out to get her" - that the big money pay-off for her "tribulations" has been denied her by the media which is working in cahoots with the families of the lacrosse players to make certain that "her story" is never told.Thanks go to Walt-in-Durham and the Anon for reporting the event.
Apparently the video shown by Mangum’s promoter Ed Clark mixes images of Dr. King and the early civil rights struggle with content based on Mangum’s past hustles and whines.
I wish Clark hadn’t done that. He should have more respect for Dr. King and the early struggle.
But as long as Clark’s going to use Dr. King’s courage and legacy and the genuine claims on America of the early civil rights movement to promote Mangum and her “dream,” I’ve a suggestion for him.
He should title Mangum’s future public hustle and whine sessions “$$ Eye$ On The Prize $$”
