Transcript AABL seeks demands; violence erupt AABL supporters gather to hear Sterling Baker, bottom. Lynn Eusan addresses students during "rap session," left. Supporters throng to Cullen building to confront Hoffman, above. S&S officers guards besieged bookstore, right. AABL supporters rally to march on the President's office, lower right. Below, marchers crowd into the vacant office before disbanding. Black students discontent at UH boiled to the surface early in the spring semester as Afro- Americans for Black Liberation (AABL) presented a list of ten demands to the UH administration. The demands included an Afro-American studies department, more black administrators and instructors, and a raise in pay scales for maintenance employees. AABL representatives held "rap sessions" in March to explain the nature and purposes of the demands. AABL leaders and sympathizers also marched on President Philip Hoffman's office. Violence Erupts The next week, without any forewarning, violence erupted in a rapid series of events triggered by the alleged assault of Gene Locke, AABL leader, by three white men in a school parking lot. AABL held a rally in the den which culminated in a fist fight between white and black students. A rally held later that day moved to the Safety and Security building where students demanded a statement from Sterling Baker. Dissatisfied with that statement they then moved to make a show of force by taking and holding the University Center. In the excitement of the action, over $2000 in UC property was destroyed as participants smashed windows and facilities in the Den and Cougar Bookstore. Later in the semester 14 students were indicted with charges for disruption and rioting. 71
