Date: Mon, 3 Feb 1997 22:29:56 -0500 From: "Bethany K. Dumas" Subject: Students and "Ebonics" I was delighted to learn today that some undergraduate students at the U of TN are concerned about media bias and minisformation re ebonics. A member of the Students' Speaker Bureau invited me to participate in a panel discussion on the subject on 2/11. I am not free to be on the panel at 7 p.m., but said that I would join later. I have been thinking about ofering to give a presentation in Knoxville, and I have now decided to offer to do one at the Knoxville Teachers' Center and also one on the campus. What are others doing?
