College of love and charity
We gather 'round thy noble shrineg
We lift our voice in praise to thee,
And ask a blessing all divine
FAM-U! FAM-U! I love thee
l'll fight and win what'er the battle be
The Orange and the Green thy Sons shall e'er defend
And loyal to thy voice of love attend
FAM-U! FAM-U! FAM-U! Ilove thee!
On gridiron, diamond, track and lield,
Thy sons the vict'ry never yield,-
And while they tread a broader life
Thy love shall stay them in the strife.
God ever keep us true to theeg
Thy faith that truth shall make men free.
Shall guide thy loyal sons aright
And fend them thru' the skeptic night.
From The Editor's Desk .
This edition of the "Rattler" means more than the space on this page would allow. Each page
represents a long struggle for "success" despite the odds." lt has indeed been a dedicated
tight to bring you a year worth remembering.
Refiecting to the days when "a good plow" was passed from share cropper to son, the family
heirloom from mother to daughter, with the plea for greater growth and prosperity, it is easy
to see that this tradition still exists.
Today that Hgood plow" takes the form of computer discs and microscopes to be passed on
to the astronauts and scientists of the future. g
This years' theme "Rattlerism Portraits of Excellence" is dedicated to yesterdays
sharecroppers, today's working mothers, and tomorrow's leaders. lt defines the composition of
a Rattler in mind, body and spirit embedded into the unique Rattler experience.
We chose no formal dedication of this edition, because it is dedicated to you, the entire FAMU
student body and alumni for you have endured this verystruggle and have been incorporated
into the essence of Rattlerism.
This book is a portrait of myself, my dreams, and ambitions. But more importantly, it is a
portrait of you, Portraits of Excellence.
Charles P. Moore
Rattlerism is the celebration of
our culture and our heritage.
and the ability to appreciate
Rattlerism is not just an ex-
pression, it's a state of mind,
tightly interwoven into a tex-
tured, fabricated existence.
Rattlerism is found in many
forms. Passed down from gen-
eration to generation, Rattler-
ism can be found in the dreams
of a child with hopes of one day
becoming a Rattler, through
the glow in his eyes and the
gleam in his smile. It is found in
the memories of the oldg their
PW '-" H '
glorious years on the Hill.
Rattlerism is the burning ea-
gerness to achieve and relate
our cognitive knowledge
and the virtue of patience.
Rattlerism is the pride in a
campus whose structure radi-
ates a feeling of strength, wis-
dom and elegance . ..
matched only by the beau-
ty of a Rattler lady.

. . . The thrill and excitement of
becoming a part of the action.
It's the inner feeling of pride
and dedication that each mem-
ber feels when he or she be-
longs to that "great organiza-
tion." They are putting their
best foot forward in utilizing
one's ability to be of service to
the organization, the university
and the community.

POP LAR MUS C IT SOUNDS
GOOD B T THE LYRICS CA
By Daisy Cherry
Music Today has taken an interesting twist. Where as
composition and arrangement accomplishments are
dynamic, the lyrical content leaves its value to be
Just turn on any popular Black radio station and you're
likely to hear adult women boastfully singing about
being "nasty girls" or that it doesn't matter that the
man they want belongs to their best friend.
"Music," says Frank Laskley, a 22 year old senior at
FAMU, "is an art form that can touch the soul,
manipulate emotions and have a profound and
subconscious effect on the listener's mind." According
to Laskey, "Black music tends to degrade Blacks. Few
musicians like Stevie Wonder, produce well-written, well-
played and non-degrading music."
"What's disturbing" says Prymus Brown, 23, of
Jacksonville Florida, "is the fact that a lot of highly
creative musicians are artistically producing negative
and questionable vibes." "This trend in music is not an
example of musicians trying to survive or giving the
people what they want, but more of an example of the
lack of thought," says Laskey. "The music really
reflects a trend in Black thought," says Phyllis Autry, a
21 year old senior at FAMU. "This is very disturbing."
"To think that tunes like BARRY WHlTE'S "Change" and
Cameo's "Be Yourself," don't get as much airplay as
PRlNCE'S "international Lover" and "Dance, Music, Sex
and Romance," is revolting says Brown.
Joe Bullard WANM announcer and program director,
says that "people are buying what they want. Bullard, a
graduate of FAMU, and native of Jacksonville, has been
with WANM for nine years and has been program
director for six of those years.
"Kids listen to "Head" Ca provocative song taken from
PRlNCE'S 'Controversey' lpj, when it first came out, its
up to the parent to explain the song to them. Parents
should tell kids the significance of all of the songs,"
says Bullard. "l'm not a parent," says Brown, 'ibut
when I hear the lyrics of some song, I imagine
teenagers and kids becoming intrigued by its newness
and freekiness. They're popping their fingers, singing
the lyrics by rote and taking them all very lightly,
maybe, having their outlook or behavior affected by it
"lt still remains," says Bullard, that as did the saints,
people will still go marching into the record shops."

REFLECTIONS OF THE RELIGIOUS SCENE AT
By Rev. Fletcher Bryant, Director of FAMU Reli-
gious Activities Center
The "old timers can be heard crying What
happened to the good old days when we went to
Vesper every Sunday evening and Religious Em-
phasis Week was one of the highlights of the
year! What about all of those singing groups we
use to have and special religous programs. Could
it be that Black Colleges and Universities are de-
emphasizing religion, which has historically been
the very corner-stone, strength, and substaining
power of these institutions.
A simple answer is, nothing has happened to
religion on our campuses. It is "alive and well".
However, it must be acknowledged that we have
just emerged from twenty years of sweeping
changes and revolutionary times in which tradi-
tional manifestations and forms of religious pro-
grams have not been in the forefront, A part of
this demise can be attributed to the religion in
the school debates in our State and Federal
courts and an identity crisis among young black
people in the sixties and early seventies, which
very seriously questioned the relevancy of the
church and particularly the relationship of the
Black Church to white theology, worship, and
In the mist of this searching and struggling by
black students, there has always been a deep
religious consciousness rooted in their black
church upbringing. Today, black college students
still raise the hard questions and struggle with
their new freedom of choice to go to church, or
not to go to church, but beneath this struggle is a
genuine desire to find God and religious meaning
in the college setting.
The success of Religious Programming on the
college campus will, in the future, depend on the
willingness of college administrations to provide
the openess and climate for students to find
meaning in a complex world much different than
twenty years ago. The religious message, spiritu-
al principles, and high morals remain unchanged,
but the form and the style of Religious Programs
must be altered to meet the religious needs of
students in the contemporary college setting. In
the words of a student, "we do not want exactly
the same religious stuff we got back home. We
want to be free to grow, to explore, and find new
answers which speak to where we are present-
The scene at FAMU details this new thrust. A
recent survey of religious affiliation and concerns
of FAMU students reveals the following data:

and there is no data concerning frequency
with which these students attend church.
However, consultations with ministers in
the area, indicates that the churches are
not reaching a significant number of FAMU
V. There is no Sunday Chapel. A number of
students attend one of the churches tem-
porarily housed on campus.
VI. On campus organized weekly religious ac-
tivities have been limited in recent years.
While the data does not appear encouraging,
there are some exciting developments evolving
at FAMU which should greatly impact our reli-
gious programming in the future.
The University for the first time since 1974, has
engaged a full time Director of Religious Activi-
ties through the office of the Vice President of
Student Affairs. This new office was made possi-
ble through the cooperative efforts of the United
Methodist Church and other denominations. A
new religious center has been opened in the Uni-
versity Union Complex Csetj. This center includes
a reading room, counseling office, a small group
meeting room, and the office of the director, an
ordain United Methodist Clergyman. A university
wide calendar was established this year to bring
such outstanding scholars as Dr. Eric Lincoln,
Professor of Sociology of Religion, Duke Univer-
sity, Dr. Jefferson Cleveland, Black Sacred Music
Specialist, and lman W.D. Muhammed, world
leader of American Muslims. The center pro-
grams also includes bible studies, forums, and
rap sessions. Other musical and creative pro-
grams are developed in consultation with other
organizations on campus.
Finally, Florida A 8t M University, inspite of cer-
tain limitation as a state institution in relating to
religious programs has expressed interest in the
total student by virtue of its openess regarding
the importance of religion to a student. Every
major event from an invocation at a convocation,
to a music selection of the Marching 100, or a
prayer in the football lockeroom reminds the
FAMU student that the University is not only
committed to academic programs, but the spiri-
tual and religious well being of its students.

LT. COL. CHARLES
HOLDSNAKEU HOBBS RETIRES
After 20 years of Mlitary
Service He lea ves behind a
strong Philosophy on life and
success . . .
By Daisy Terri
September 1, 1983 is a day that will be remem-
bered by many Army officers and Army ROTC
cadets at Florida A and M University. On that
day, Lieutenant Colonel Charles "The Old
Snake" Hobbs will officially retire from the US
Army after a very successful career of 20 years.
Hobbs came to Florida A and M University in
1980 as Professor of Military Science for Army
ROTC. Those who witnessed the transition agree
that in less than three years, Hobbs and his team
of dedicated cadre and staff turned what was a
floundering program, into what is now an out-
standing one. Now, the morale and motivation of
the corps in high, and above all, the level of
student achievement is high,
The greatest factor attributing to Hobbs' success
with the program is something called "Hobb-
sism." "Hobbsism" is, in fact, the basic personal
philosophy of Hobbs. On any given day, one can
walk over to Howard Hall and find Hobbs im-
pressing upon his cadets to perform well, be con-
fident and respect the rights and property of
others. "Black students should, first and fore-
most, love themselves, prepare well for the
struggle and then make a contribution in life,"
Hobbs has carefully built an ROTC program that
- is guided by the principle which emphasizes that
"there is no one in the world better than l am.
Yes, there are some as good as I, but not bet-
A graduate of Florida A and M University and
native of Miami, Florida, Hobbs was commis-
sioned a second lieutenant in the US Army Infan-
try in 1963. While at Florida A and M University
as a student, he majored in Political Science,
lettered 4 years in football, served as Army
ROTC Battalion Commander and pledged Kappa
Alpha Psi fraternity.
After assignment as Platoon Leader, Company
Commander, administrationfpersonnel officer
and operations officer, Hobbs was assigned as an
instructor with the Florida A and M University
Army ROTC detachment in 1969. In 1972 he was
assigned to the Command and General Staff Col-
lege as a student. From there he traveled to
Texas where he received an M.A. Degree in
Among various other staff assignments during
After building a strong ROTC Program Hobbs feels he's due a good rest.
his 20 year career, Hobbs spent three months in
Washington, D.C. as a special project officer on
the committee designated to plan for the inaugu-
ration of President Reagan.
His awards and decorations include the Legion of
Merit, the Bronze Star, the Meritorious Service
Medal and the Army Commendation Medal with
Oak Leaf Cluster.
"l love Florida A and M University and I love this
program. My greatest challenge has been to in-
crease the ability of our students to communi-
cate effectively," says Hobbs. Last year, Hobbs
instituted programs geared toward correcting
deficiencies of Army ROTC students. "We're do-
ing more than just talking about it." Two of his
key projects have been Assertive Skills Develop-
ment conducted at Howard Hall by Dr. Juanita
Williams of the Psychology Department, and a
Reading Skills improvement Program coordinat-
ed by Dr. Jennings at the FAMU Learning Re-
Hobbs sees his main purpose as that of produc-
ing outstanding young people. "lf our graduates
are good, they will make good Army officers. The
college one attends, or one's hometown, is not
really important. The thing that is, is the quality
of the individual. We must never forget that our
finished product reflects the quality of FAMU."

Anyone who thinks a person from a
small town has to remain a small town
person did not know Al Lawson, Jr.. Law-
son, a native of Midway, Florida fits this
description as well as a lot of added at-
He attended Florida A 81 M University
and graduated with a Political Science
Degree. Throughout his college years he
continued to strive for a career in Politi-
cal Science and professional basketball,
he said. After college he landed a coach-
ing job at Florida State University at
which he stayed for five years and
opened a private insurance business
that has been very successful for him.
He is also a family man. His wife, De-
lores, is on the FAMU School of Nursing
staff. He also has a 12 year old son,
Alfred Lawson lll and a daughter Shani
Politics has always been in his mind,
Lawson said his plans were to try his
hand at a city level position and then
venture out into the state legislature. He
said his plans were interrupted by the
rezoning of the city's districts so he de-
cided to wait for another opportunity, it
finally came and now Al Lawson, Jr. is
one of 10 blacks in Florida's House of
"This is not an easy job because of the
people's livelyhood. lt is a rewarding ex-
perience to some, yet it is hard because
you have to deal with the poor people
being left out on major breaks." Lawson
Like all jobs, being in the House of Re-
presentatives has its good and bad
points. Lawson said, "A feeling of work-
ing with the people" is the most satisfy-
ing in his job. "Knowing that many peo-
ple try to manipulate "the system" is
the most dissatisfying of the job.
His major goal while maintaining his po-
sition inthe state legislature is to stimu-
late economic development to form
jobs, he said. He is trying to do just that
because he serves on the Tourism, Judi-
ciary, Economic Development and High-
er Education committees. He is also
working on the Cable Television, Regis-
tration by Mail and the Alcohol Educa-
Like many of his counterparts, the
house member is a very well known citi-
zen and has served on many of the city's
major committees. His record includes
being the past chairman of the board
and president of the Tallahassee Urban
League, past president and chairman,
FAMU Boosters, directer and advisor,
the United Way Council, vice president,
for the Lincoln Neighborhood Center,
past board member, FSUEEO Advisory
Council, past chairman, FSU Graduate
and State Public Administration. He is
also a Little League baseball coach.
In the insurance business he has won
many of the most prestigious awards
given. He is affliated with the Northwes-
tern Mutual Life Insurance Company.
They are a disability and retirement pen-
sion corporation. Throughout his career
he has won Agent of the Year in 1979 for
the best sales in the state of Florida, the
Mike Gish Award which is given to the
lst and 2nd year outstanding agent, the
Bronze Gold and Silver award in sales
and the Million Dollar Round Table
Award which is given to the most presti-
gious insurance salesman.
How does he feel about his accomplish-
ments? He said, "When you get in-
volved, the people want you." And get-
ting involved is what he did! But it's not
stopping there for Lawson. He plans to
get a Master's Degree in insurance fi-
nance and within five years he plans to
produce S10 milliona year in insurance
and finally get his own office building.
"Al Lawson is what many blacks in Talla-
hassee considers as their hope," said
one source. He continued, "This out-
standing, young black businessman has
not only made another seat in the Flor-
ida House of Representatives a little
more colorful, he has also inspired hope
for Tallahassee's black achievement."

Prince, the unquestionable monarch of erotic
music is one ofthe biggest musical
accomplishments of the year. His new wave
rock album, 1999 takes an altered approach
to listening. The title track takes a "live for
today" message. Tunes include "Let's get
delirious", "Automatic," and "International
Lover." Two of the album's most controversial
cuts are "Little Red Corvett" and "Lady Cab
Driver." Both have one evasive surface
meanings, but sex is the undertone.
Much of Prince's finacial success is due to
capture both R Bt B and rock audiences. Most
significant is the fact that Prince has few
pockets to fill other that his own. He
continues to produce, arrange, compose and
perform all of his music.
In addition to his own acclaim two of Prince's
prodisy groups The Time and Vanity 6 are
doing trumendously well.
Cold Blooded Rick
Some say he nasty rude and coarse. Local
civic groups say he has a negative influence
on today's youth, but Rick James could care
less because he's doing his own thing and
enjoying every minute and every dollar of it!
Rick James puts on no fronts. His music is
about his life street life. Like his prior
releases, "Throwdown," which featured
"Dance With Me," and "Standing On The
Top,"' ffeaturing the return of the
Temptations on background vocalsj and
"Street Songs" which featured "Getto Life"
and "Pass The Joint" his music is symbolic of
the street . . . Coldblooded and the title of his
current lp. "Coldblooded" is a countinuation
of Slick Rick's musical point of view. The title
cut is a celebration of the old "boy meets girl,
girl plays hard to get" routine, getto style.
The aIbum's top ballad is "Ebony Eyes" and
features a duo with Rick and Smokey
This year Rick has also introduced his answer
to Prince's Vanity 6, The Mary Jane Girls.
They're Candi, Cheri, JoJo and Maxi four sexy
ladies with a great sound. Their hits include:
"All Night Long", "Boys," and "Candyman".

1983 has been a year of transitions,
modifications and branching out for many
artists. Commodore lead singer, Lionel Richie
has taken a break from his career pals and
tried his hand at going solo. One thing that
hasn't changed is his style music and its
effect on women! When Richie sings his lyrics
take on special meaning to all femine ears
with respect for a love song. His latest effort,
Truly" is loaded with mellow tunes that hang
tough with the leading "pop" tunes on the
Do it Roger Do it.
Roger Troutman is also making it out on his
own. Former lead singer of the group "Zapp",
Roger is making remarkable waves with tunes
like "Dolt Roger Do lt," and "Do Wa Diddy".
Zapp is not exactly suffering over the lost of
Roger. They are continuing to make upward
bounds with hits like "I Can Make You
Success didn't come over night for Luther
Vandross. It took many years of ups and
downs to reach Luther's pinnacle of success.
Now he is considered one of the leaders in
contemporary music. In 1981 after a
successful stay as lead singer for the group
"Change," Luther made his debut as a one
man show with the release of his first effort,
entitled t'Luther" His current Ip, "Forever, For
Always, For Love" establishes Vandros as one
of the most creative performer of a ballad
today. Some of lp's hottest cuts include, "Bad
Boy fHaving a Partyj, which is a combonation
of Luther's own creativity with that of the late
Sam Cooke, and She Loves Me back. In
addition to producing his own albums, Luther
He's bold, daring and the king of funk, George
Clinton started his P-Funk crusade in the 70's
with the landing of "The Mothership

through musical characterizations such as Dr.

tour with the P-Funk All-Stars, George is
promoting his new album "Computer Games".
His smash hit 'Atomic Dog" is smoking the
charts with such lyrics as "Why must I feel

BORN TO LOVE
Peabo Bryson's 1982 "Don't Play With Fire,"
was recieved with moderate success. However
his 1983 combo with Roberta Flack entitled
"Born TO Love," brings together two brilliant
vocal styles that have made their albums hit
bound. The songs have all the classic
characteristics of the power and depth that
the two artists are famous for.
Although both Flack and Bryson's ability can
stand alone, together they prove that two
marvelous voices are better than one. The
album is loaded with ballads and dance tunes.

AMAZING GRACE: A ONE MAN SHOW
Sexy diva singer Grace Jones is amazing. This
former european model and Oxford University
graduate, has gone back to her Jamaican roots
with her latest album entitled "Living My Life."
As always Grace continues to be a trend setter
and occupies her own space in contemporary
The album is packed with tunes double dipped in
raggae Funk. The track "My Jamaican Guy,"
takes you on a journey to an island shore on a
hot blazing day. An infallible beat makes it a
' terrific dance tune.
The aIbum's hottest release, "Nipple to The
Bottle", is a chip off the old "Pull up to the
Bumper" block in which the lyrics take on a
"take it any way you want to" meaning.
One of the album's best but often over looked in
terms of air play is "Unlimited Capacity for
Love," like the other uptempo selections, it
carries a heavy beat. Equally as exotic is "Cry
Now Laugh Later."
Unafraid of being herself Grace is comfortable
just being her own outrageous self. She's indeed
living her life.

Cynthia and Anita have been
roommates for several years
with virtually no problems, oth-

By Sheila McNair
Some people can get along with any-
one, while others can get along with no
one. If you are not one of the people,
who adapt easily this article may be of
some use to you.
When trying to get along with one's
roommate there are two things that
must be taken under consideration.
The two are communication and con-
sideration. For example, if one room-
mate is having a "pot party" the other
roommate shouldn't just invite him or
herself, he or she should ask first. And
if the roommates get together and dis-
cuss the possibility of a conference
with dormitory officials and the friendly
Cleanliness is a problem that has pla-
gued roommates since the dawn of
time. One roommate will always think
that the other roommate is either too
neat or is too nasty. To combat this
age old problem, local hospital officials
have come up with a strategy that is
guaranteed to be successful. No one
should clean up!
There are others who say they have
the real key to getting along with any
roommate at any time, no matter who
the roommates are, no matter what
the situation. lt is very simple. Don't
have a roommate. lt's the quickest ea-
siest way to save yourself the hassles

"What I look for in a photo
is interest, will it appeal to
the viewer. Photography,
like music is a universal
language. In order to
appeal to the viewer the
image must have universal
understanding. One thing I
don't like is when people
say "your camera takes
good pictures." They fail to
realize that a photographic
image is not just the
technical execution which
is manually pressing the
shutter, but the obtaining
of knowledge to know how
to capture that image,
such as correct exposure

Peace Of Mind
By Kirk Drumming
Peace of mind, that's what it's all about.
It's something we all like to have,
contentment without a trace of doubt.
Yes, something to keep us from feeling bad,
have peace of mind and carry with clout.
As each day pass of our lives we live
we thrive for things to keep us satisfied.
Keeping our dreams so alive and vivid,
feeling comfortable until that day we die.
Some who can't achieve use alcohol, drugs and
some even crime.
Yes these they try, though they may seem crude
they have a need, a desire to keep up with time,
living each day hoping for complete solitude.

From the moment Dizzie Gillespie stepped onto the stage on
November 22, of FAMU's Lee Hall Auditorium, the round bellied
trumpter had full control of his small but enthusiastic jazz crowd.
exempliting why he has come to be deemed "the total
As the atmosphere changed with each selection, Dizzy performed
some oi world's favorite tunes such as "A Night in Tunisia",
"Take the "A" Train" and "Salt Peanuts."
"Sex is a misternenor . ,, the more l miss the meaner l get,"
cracked Dizzie during one of his many humorous intermissions,
Blowing some purest notes ever heard on his unique trumpet,
Dizzy piloted a journey through the 40's and those glorious days
at the Savoy Cone of jazz headquarters of the worldj when he
and Charlie "yardbird" Parker revolutionized the art of Mjazzin'
Born in Cheraw South Carolina, John Birks 'tDizzie" Gillespie was
first introduced to music by his father, an ameture musician and
grew attached to the trumpet at age 15.
Dizzle gained most of his recognition during the late 30's and into
the 40's. He worked briefly with Mercer Ellington in New York
and toured with Cab Calloway's Band in 1939. From there he
piayed with a long line of Jazz aristocrats including: Elia
Fitzgerald, Betty Carter, Charlie Barnet, Les l-lite, Calvin Jackson,
Earl "Father" l-lines, Woody Herman, and John Kirby.
Although Dizzy has recorded many tive and studio recordings
which were strickly about the business of jazz, most recently
Dizzy Gillespie did a little branching out with his work sultry
songtress, Chaka Khan. When Chaka recorded the lp "Whatcha
Gonna Do For Me" last year, Dizzie was featured on his own
"Night ln Tunisa", which was given new lite with contempory
rythms, a new title: "Anight ln Tunisia, CAnd the melody still
lingers ony" and for the first time set to lyrics.
ln Addition to being a trend setter, and a musical perfectionist,
Dizzy is a jazz historian, dedicated to the longevity of jazz.
Reviewing some of the drawbacks of jazz, Dizzy notes that one of
the most significant probierns is that the youth of today arent
getting enough exposure to jazz as they should. "Parents don't
have much respect for lt. Classical music is considered more
culturally enriching to most parents," He said in an interview with
FAMUAN reporter Sherry Tigget. "l go into the schools and they
all have white bands playing our music and l ask. Where is us?"
Dizzy also revealed that aithough there is much more electronic
sound involved in jazz today, the basic thrust has remained the
"lt's not much difference than in the 4O's," he said. They

Why Black Psychology? This may be a question that
many ask when first introduced to the term. ls
psychology not simply another "objective" science
which can not be referred to in racial or cultural
terms? According to many social scientists, the
science of psychology is not objective and is quite
vulnerable to variations, socioculturally and
cosmologically. It is the contention of some
psychologists that psychology, as presented in todays
society, is essentially the Western hemisphere's
version of psychology. This Western Psychology has
been disguised to make students believe that this
perspective of psychology is in fact, the Universal and
Natural Psychology of the world. Because of this
manipulation, Black social scientists believe it is
necessary to promote the term Black Psychology in
new theories have been presented. The habitual task
of regurgitation of material has been changed to the
task of studying and critically analyzing material and
its' relevance to Black people in America.
Black Psychology in its' most basic form has strong
ties to African philosophy. Black Psychology takes into
account the effects that slavery and the total system
of oppression has had on the minds of African-
Americans. Black Psychology seeks provocative
measures to improve the mental conditions of the
community. While not solely committed to "pointing
the finger" Black Psychology does not hesitate to
identify and resist antagonistic forces for the Black
order to negate the idea of the universality of Western The utility of Black Psychology for the African-
Here at Florida A 8. M University during the academic
year of 1982-83, the issue of Black Psychology has
been extensively addressed by the Department of
Psychology behind the thrust of the Association of
Black Psychologists. Psychology from the perspective
of the African-American takes on cultural differences
that has not been addressed by traditional Western
psychology. Issues and theories that have been
presented as the "truth" have been questioned and
American college student centers around the definition
of reality. This perspective of psychology helps us to
filter through reality and non-reality for Black people.
This discrimination is paramount in the healthy
functioning of African-Americans.
So as the question of "Why Black Psychology" is
raised the answers come forward. Black Psychology
defines and affirms the reality of living for Black people
in America. Black Psychology is one of the first steps
towards the liberation of our minds.

Graffiti. Buildings, bus seats and
public restrooms are full of it. Now,
however, it is as much a part of col-
lege campuses as exams and Greek
organizations. Along with its in-
crease, is vandalism and for Florida
A 84 M University -thank goodness,
it is minimal.
True there are some cases of vend-
ing machine tamperings, and in vir-
tually every classroom in every
building on campus, there stands a
desk with no table top or a three-
legged chair, but these same find-
ings can be found on almost every
campus in the U.S. and most are not
caused by vandalism - or at least,
not on FAMU's campus.
Donna Miller, a data processing ma-
jor from New York, said that
"broken chairs and desks are found
in alot of the classrooms in Tucker
Hall, but l've never heard of break-
ins and sabotages in anu of FAMU's
Veronica Giles, a junior finance ma-
jor from Pompano Beach, reiterated
similar sentiments. "Fl-XMU has a
couple of raggedy desks but I can't
see where we suffer from vandalism
on anything near a wide scale. The
closest I know to actual vandalism is
the latest run of panty raids happen-
ing in the girls' dorm." she laughed.
Said Debra Harper, "FAMU's walls
are in pretty good condition, l don't
know about break-ins or broken
glass doors, and I certainly haven't
heard anything about any office
equipment being stolen. l think van-
dalism at FAMU is done on a very
small scale if in fact, it is done at all.
Well fellow Famuans, I for one an
glad that amongst all our other prob-
lems, we don' have to be concerned
with walking into class one morning
and finding NO four-legged chairs or
NO desk without tabletops. We don't
have to be concerned with missing
windows in the rain, or doorless
doorways or even hunger pains that
won't be softened by a bag of pota-
toe chips or a Milky-Way bar from
the closest vending machine.
Now, if only we would be that there
won't be more of those darned pan-

INTER VIE W' TERRI JARMIN
A Moment Mth Uur Queen
I By Vashtye
"I ran for Miss FAMU because I felt the
need to appeal to the students through
a more interaction," said Terri Jarmin
our reigning Miss FAMU. "I wanted to
be a queen that would be accessible to
the needs of the students."
The job of being MISS FAMU has been
exciting as well as productive for Terri.
However the job requires a lot of time
and stamina. In addition to always be-
ing on call to perform her duties as
Miss FAMU, Terri is a peer counselor, a
Girl Scout Leader in the Tallahassee
area and a member of Delta Sigma
The 21 year old Senior from Orlando
Florida said that the highlight of her
reign was Homecoming Week. During
her coronation she was honored with a
parade of valuable gifts. COne of which
was a wedding gownllj She happily re-
calls the exciting sensation as she and
her court were being presented to the
crowd of spectators at the game.
"That was a beautiful day" Terri said.
"I was so proud because my parents
were watching me from the stands."
Terri also feels that she has been al-
lowed to grow in her communication
abilities as well as her confidence. Be-
ing MISS FAMU she says has given her
the opportunity to interact with and
meet more people. In many instances
Terri has had to come forward to ad-
dress an audience, for this reason she
feels that it is essential that Miss FAMU
keep up with "all" of the issues espe-
cially those concerning the university.
Being a Senior Business Administration
major Terri notes that she must re-
member to be a student first. How
does she get through these strenuous
times? She puts her faith in God, her
christianity and prayer. Through her
faith she finds that class responsibil-
ities and her duties as Miss FAMU are a
Always interacting with her fellow stu-
dents and cheering those around her,
Terri decided to remain on campus to
be closer to the student body. Her
room often became a center for uni-
versity information campus activities
Terri feels that her reign as Miss FAMU
has been very rewarding. "I didn't have
any let-downs because I didn't expect
the world." Terri's attitude of "lt is bet-
ter to give a little than asking for a lot".
will reward her with a lasting image of
being one of Famu's most sincere,
kind, loving and respected queens.
