Document Description: By September 1993, the Board of Trustees had already approved a free-standing Black cultural center at the Coker Woods site. At the request of the BCC Advisory Board, trustees agreed to hear arguments for re-evaluating the Wilson site at its September 24th meeting, though afterwards, they agreed not to re-vote on the issue. In between these meetings, John Pope, a former member of the Board of Governors, placed this advertisement in the Raleigh News & Observer, urging alumni and state citizens to work against the “separate Black Cultural Center.” John Pope is perhaps best known now as the father of Art Pope, the conservative founder of the John William Pope Foundation and John Locke Foundation.
