Since early April when Rudy Crew, the President of Medgar Evers College
announced that Hillary Clinton would be Commencement Speaker at the
school's graduation and that she would be awarding her an honorary
doctorate our organization KOMOKODA has been on the move. For us, this
decision is an insult to the legacy of Medgar Evers for when he was
assassinated in 1963 Hillary Clinton was a "Goldwater Girl" standing with
Barry Goldwater in opposing Civil Rights for Black people and also an
insult to the Black youth who attend Medgar Evers College who Hillary
called "super predators with no conscience, no empathy" who "must be
brought to heel".



We have held several protests outside the school, distributed over 10,000
flyers in front of the school and in the surrounding neighborhoods. When we
started protesting most students, faculty, and staff did not even know
Hillary was being brought to their graduation. Upset community members have
called Rudy Crew's office as well as CUNY Chancellor James Milliken's
office to demand that they rescind the invitation and they have sent faxes
and letters to the school, and joined us in organizing and meetings, and
leafleting all over the city.



Our work has been so successful that students are in uproar and this issue
has become an elephant in every room in the school with everyone wondering
how much is Rudy Crew getting paid for this. Hillary's minions have had to
call on 84 year-old Myrlie Evers-Williams (former wife of Medgar) to be
present at the graduation to "personally introduce her long time friend
Hillary". They are such long time friends that Hillary referred to Medgar
Evers as "Medgar Evans" while speaking at the American Bar Association's
2013 annual meeting in San Francisco (
