The president of Cabrini College yesterday convened the entire campus community - students, faculty and staff - at the small, private Main Line Catholic school to denounce what she called a "perceived pattern" of racial and ethnic intimidation on campus. But several students, criticizing the president's speech as too little, too late, accused the college administration of dragging its feet in addressing repeated concerns expressed by minority students about the harassment. About 7 percent of the college's 1,200 resident, commuter and graduate students are minorities.

Valery Swope, 18, answered her phone one afternoon in March. It was Cabrini College, telling her she had been accepted. "I feel so great. Oh, my Lord. I've got to tell everybody!" First, she posed for a selfie. "I've got to take a picture of this face!" Then she got on the phone. The first six people she called were two caseworkers with the state child welfare agency, two social workers appointed by the court, a child-advocate in the public defender's office, and an FBI agent.

Cornell Brooks is small of stature and slight of build, but there was nothing slight about the NAACP president's voice once he began addressing the crowd. His fists shaking and his voice bellowing, he delivered his speech before the Cabrini College audience as though it were a Sunday sermon. "Fifty years," he roared, referencing the recent anniversary of the historic march in Selma, Ala., that helped lead to the 1965 Voting Rights Act. And yet, he thundered, "for every act of justice, there seems to be an equal and opposite action of injustice.

One of the most important figures in the civil-rights movement was stopped from speaking at the historic March on Washington and has spent the last half-century in virtual obscurity. But a month before that 1963 march, it was Gloria Richardson, a full-time mother who kept guns in her house, seated next to U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy during the signing of the historic "Treaty of Cambridge. " As the leader of a group that became a national model for the likes of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the burgeoning black power movement, she was instrumental in brokering that agreement, which lay the groundwork for desegregation in an Eastern Shore town in Maryland.

Better luck next time, Dean. When a student by that name at a Radnor Township university ordered fake IDs from China, his first mistake was having the cards delivered to campus, police say. The second was not realizing that he shared a name with a ranking school administrator. A dean, no less. Thanks to a mail room mix-up, that's who found the identification cards in his mailbox on Jan. 5. "You can't make this up," Radnor Police Superintendent William Colarulo said of the similarity in names that lead to the discovery.

Charles Kelly whacked the pair of lacrosse sticks against the turf. He tried pulling them apart with his gloved hands. Kelly's stick was latched to his opponent's, and his efforts were futile. He dropped the sticks, threw his arms up, and ran off the field. The Malvern Prep junior is one of the nation's premier faceoff specialists, using a technique that snatches the ball with quick precision. Wednesday, his speed was a detriment. He won the faceoff so fast that his opponent's net got tangled on a small crack in the head of Kelly's stick.

THERE'S NO TELLING where Aaron Walton-Moss might be, or what he'd be doing, if Cabrini College hadn't, mostly by happenstance, come into his life 3 years ago. But reality suggests it probably wouldn't be good. "I mean, just growing up, where I'm from, there's a lot of stuff going on," he said. "And I had it better than a lot of other kids. "But every day I wake up and I'm thankful I'm alive. " The 6-2 junior guard, who almost assuredly would have been playing at a higher level had he been nearly as proficient in the classroom as he was with a basketball at Camden High, is averaging 26.3 points, 10.7 rebounds and 5.7 assists, all team highs, for the third-ranked team in Division III. That's a big deal.
