Michigamua in the News Again- Alum and UM Employee file Lawsuit


Having just been reacquainted with cyberland, I am realizing some of my former passions... Since I have learned that most of the sites formerly used to expose Michigamua are no longer up and running (although Rob Goodspeed of The GoodSpeed Update seems to have a pretty good thing going, I figured it is time that one of us, a member of the Students of Color Coalition puts a site up....

And for the grand opening of this blog.....
Alum slaps 'U' with lawsuit
Well this news is interesting, to say the least.

For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, here is a little background. It started, ultimately, with colonialism and the colonization of Native Americans, among other peoples...it culminated with the 37 day occupation of the University of Michigan Union Tower beginning on February 6, 2000 (please visit
Michigan Daily and search the archives for "students of color" and michigamua for more information or just click here).

Please check this link for an actual letter from the tower, during the 2000 occupation.

It is going to be a slow process of getting all of the information posted to this site, but I will be diligent.
