Transcript In Memory of Lynn Eusan "What a happy day, when she won Homecoming Queen for the University of Houston! She was stunned because her main purpose was to unify black and minority students on campus. Amidst death threats, she triumphed and we triumphed," said Omowale, who gave the speech at her memorial service. tudents of the Africans in America for Black Liberation (AABL) remembered the contributions of Lynn Eusan, a dynamic civil rights leader and former student, who was murdered on Sept. 10,1971. In 1968 Eusan, who was an English/Education major, became the first black student to be selected Homecoming Queen. However, Eusan, a San Antonio native, was equally noted for her political contributions to the university and the community. She was a volunteer at the SHAPE Community Center. After graduation, she worked as a reporter for the "Voice of Hope" newspaper until her death. Eusan began her involvement in politics as a freshman in 1966, when she helped to organize a campus committee for Better Race Relations. After realizing, the ' 'racial oppression, rather than relations, was the real nature of the problem," Eusan helped to organize AABL. Eusan's participation in AABL helped her to focus her attention on the problems facing the black community. She worked with AABL's anti-drug program and the black students' foundations. She also tried to organize a Black Unity Conference. In Spring 1969, Eusan participated in an AABL led demonstration that demanded satisfaction from the UH administration. The group asked for an Afro-American studies department, more black administrators and instructors and a raise in pay scales for maintenance employees. Ironically, the efforts of Eusan to uplift the black community was brought to an end when she was brutally murdered by convicted felon Leo Jackson. It is still unknown why Eusan was killed, but her memory still lives on. As a result of her efforts, there is a park on campus, Lynn Eusan Park, dedicated to her memory. As you walk through it, AABL invites students to remember her contributions and to celebrate life. -Robin Schobelock and Hillary Harmon he Good News Gospel Choir sang in memory of Lynn Eusan at her memorial service commemorating the 30th Anniversary of her death. The choir filled Lynn Eusan Park, which was named after her for her efforts to unite the community, with song. Photo by Noel Stone. tudents came to pay their respects to Lynn Eusan. Omowale gave a speech in her memorial. He said, "She was Alpha Kappa Alpha and wore the colors well. She was AABL (Afrikan Americans for Black Liberation) and there was no contradiction between the AKA and AABL. The Lynn Eusan story is the story of struggling black people and humanity."
