Dr. Harry Edwards - Sociology Professor Emeritus, University of California, Berkeley
Dr Harry Edwards, Professor Emeritus of Sociology from the University of California, Berkeley made an
appearance at Palo Alto High School on February 21, 2012 and made remarks about an array of issues involving racism.
He also made comments about Palo Alto High School graduate Jeremy Lin, whom he says has revealed a double standard of criticism.
As for amazingly penetrating remarks on the Black Church and its resistance to accept Gay Rights, Dr. Edwards pointed out
that no women were allowed to speak at the March on Washington in 1963. Mahalia Jackson was allowed to sing a hymn,
but no women and no gay speakers were allowed to speak, including two people who were principal players in the organizing
of the March, James Baldwin and Bayard Rustin.
