GUEST SPEAKER FOR THE SEPTEMBER 8, 2010 OPENING CONVOCATION - MS. VICTORIA ROWELL!


Victoria Rowell is an advocate, mother, former foster child, versatile actress,
and bestselling author. Known as the feisty Drucilla Winters on The Young and
the Restless. Ms. Rowell is asking that you read the statement below and is
encouraging your participation in her request:

Please with all due respect, and as a 12 time NAACP Image Awardee, NUL Whitney M.
Young Awardee, African American Literary Awardee & Walter Mosley novelist Awardee,
I am requesting the consideration of the posting of a petition to restore the
African American family on the soap opera, The Young and the Restless immediately.
As African Americans are overwhelmingly the majority audience and have demanded my
return but are met with resistance, a petition has been mounted on my behalf.

This is a serious matter and needs swift attention. Since 1973 The Young &
Restless has NEVER hired ONE African American writer, producer or director and
more. There are many disparities that I
attempted to change and that are well documented
