Activist to speak at UH campuses
Civil rights activist Robert Moses will speak at the AQ McElrath Fund for Social Change luncheon at noon Saturday at Kapiolani Community College.
Moses, director of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee's Mississippi Project in the 1960s, helped organize the historic Freedom Riders. As MacArthur Fellow from 1982 to 1987, Moses developed the Algebra Project to encourage literacy in mathematics among the inner city and rural poor. He will speak on that program at a teacher training workshop at KCC Saturday morning and at 12:30 p.m. next Monday at Hemenway Theatre, University of Hawaii-Manoa.
Tickets to the lunch are $50. Reservations are due by tomorrow; call 956-7068.

Cheetah Girl Sabrina Bryan sang her way through Saturday's show. Behind her was Adrienne Bailon.
Enraptured fans scream for favorite Cheetah Girls
"You want 'substance'? It's right there," said Tim Bates, referring to the screams of young fans at Saturday afternoon's Cheetah Girls show at the Blaisdell Arena.
Bates, an indulgent dad who'd brought his daughter from Kona for the concert, said he was hoping she'd be so tired afterward that he and his wife would be able to enjoy the evening without interruption.
His only regret: The Blaisdell wasn't accommodating parents by having bar service during the show. He would've paid for a drink, he said. "They lost my $40."
