In the May 26, 2010 edition of the Los Angeles Times (p. AA3), Professor Phyllis Jackson appeared in a photograph greeting Mai Huggins, the daugther of slain Black Panther member John Huggins. The photograph accompanied an article by Larry Gordon on the installation of a plaque honoring the elder Huggins and Alprentice “Bunchy” Carter at UCLA. Huggins and Carter were shot to death in UCLA’s Campbell Hall on January 17, 1969. Both were honored as social justice advocates at the UCLA ceremony.
Sam Starr (’10) was pictured on the front page of the LATExtra section of the May 17, 2010 edition of the Los Angeles Times riding his bike in the wooden velodrome he constructed in the old Seaver Science Library as part of his senior art project, “Circulus 2010.” Larry Gordon discusses Starr’s work as part of a broader look at senior projects at Pomona College in an article entitled “A Synthesis for Seniors: Undergrads meld studies into practical final projects.”
