tanding b our dut Dr. Douglas Covington, chancellor of Winston-Salem Ltate University, came to ACU March 15 as the first of two peakers sponsored by the Students' Association Educational Sffairs Committee. Covington spoke about the values of Christian education ,nd answered questions on topics such as black education ,nd the implications of ethnic changes in today's society. Covington, a member of the Church of Christ, talked ,bout the importance of Christian values in society today. "It s out duty to keep the faith," he said. "If we don't stand for omething, we'll fall for anything." He quoted statistics on the current world situation, in' :luding world poverty, lack of education and conflicts bet- veen nations, He said Christians have the ability to alleviate he problem. "If it is to be, it is up to us," he said. Concerning black education, Covington said that in the past, black colleges have played a major role, but they have done so with limited resources. Covington said the future has brightened because it is easier to find support. "I think that many of our distinguished black institutions will con- tinue to survive and thrive." Covington gave a short answer for a question about in- stitutional racism, "Racism is silly," he said. "It's a waste of natural resources. l'm happy with being black. I like my complexion. What bothers me is the reaction to my blackness." Several professional and civic organaztions have recog- nized Covington for his work, including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the National Council of Negro Women, - Beziey Bolin Covington smiles during his lecture about black education.
