At the Nov. 21 rally,
the retired honorary Dr. Edward W. Crosby told the campus populace that
Dr.Kwame Nantambu is the "enemy of black people." Well, the honorary Dr.
Crosby is correct. However, he should have taken his conclusion o ne step
further. The stark reality is that Dr. Nantambu also is the enemy and avenger
of Afropeon Negroes with a Ph.D. like Dr. Edward W. Crosby and his two
In other words, under
European supremacy, the Afrikan (black) male is the designated enemy, while
under Edward W. Crosby supremacy at Kent State University, Dr. Kwame Nantambu
is the designated enemy. In fact, about 1 1/2 years ago, I was notified
in writing by the only Africa-centered, self-appointed "Girot" [sic] in
Department of Pan-African Studies and a masquerading wanna-be African adjunct
professor, that I was the designated enemy. So in reality, Dr. Edward W.
Crosby was only reinforcing and reiterating the sentiment of his academic
baby boy and step son of 1970-71.
Let me inform Dr. Edward
W. Crosby and his two lackey [sic] who are leading the fight to oust Dr.
Garrison that I am NOT one of Dr. Crosby's former students. I am NOT one
of his academic baby boys. I am NOT one of his stepsons. He is NOT my Old
Man, and Dr. Crosby is NOT the godfather to my kids.
Students should be
protesting against 25 years of professional, intellectual and academic
impotence, decadence and retrogression the Department of Pan-African Studies
has suffered under the chairmanship of Dr. Edward W. Crosby. After 25 years
of Dr. Crosby's maladministration and academic ineptitude, DPAS is nothing
but a professional, intellectual and academic laughing stock on campus.
I also give Dr. Edward
W. Crosby credit for controlling the faculty in DPAS for more than 25 years
while he was physically present and to continue to control them even after
he is NOT physically present in DPAS.
The fact of the matter
is that education is supposed to be revolutionary, evolutionary and a change
agent. So it is totally ludicrous to say that Dr. Garrison is acting
contrary to the original mission of DPAS. This is NOT 1969 or 1976. This
is the year 1998.
Dr. Garrison has been
accused of undermining the power of the director of Center of Pan African
Culture. [he fact of the matter is that as chairman, Dr. Edward W. Crosby
controlled the budget of CPAC. He spent its money WITHOUT consulting the
director. I am DEMANDING that Dr. Francis Dorsey informs the community
why he threatened to resign at least three times as director of CPAC because
of the vindicative and dictatorial way in which he was treated by then-chair
Dr. Edward W. Crosby and why he DID NOT convene at "Black Friday" to protest
against such treatment and call for Dr. Crosby's ouster.
I RESIGNED as director
of Institute for African-American Affairs because of similar vicious and
vindicative [sic] dictatorial rule imposed and leveled against me by the
DPAS chairman Dr. Edward W. Crosby. He totally undermined my authority
as director of IAAA.
IT IS TIME FOR DR.
CROSBY TO GIVE IT UP. IT I.S TIME FOR DR. CROSBY TO LET GO. IT IS TIME
FOR DR. CROSBY TO GET A LIFE in retirement.

My obdurate and profound
disagreement with Hon. Dr. Edward W. Crosby has NOTHING to do with my application
to a full professorship.
Students, you all have
been hoodwinked. You all have been bamboozled. You all have been taken
— BIG TIME — by Dr. Edward W. Crosby, Dr. Francis E. Dorsey and professor
