At Center of `Reparations' Storm, Former 60s Radical Horowitz to Visit Harrisburg on Friday

Apr 19, 2001, 01:00 ET from Pennsylvania Leadership Council

    HARRISBURG, Pa., April 19  /PRNewswire/ -- Facing a firestorm of
 controversy, 60s radical-turned-conservative strategist David Horowitz will
 visit Harrisburg on Friday, April 20 to present the keynote address to the
 2001 Pennsylvania Leadership Conference (PLC).  The 2001 conference, the tenth
 of its kind, is the largest statewide gathering of conservative activists,
 public policy experts, and elected officials in the commonwealth.
     Horowitz, whose life-long political journey is recounted in the memoir
 "Radical Son," has thrust himself into the nation's dialogue about race by
 placing -- or attempting to place -- a series of ads in college newspapers
 around the nation.  The ads, entitled "Ten Reasons Why Reparations for Blacks
 is a Bad Idea - and Racist Too," attack the fashionable leftist notion that
 U.S. taxpayers should pay billions of dollars in "reparations" to the current
 generation of African-Americans.  Many college newspapers -- including Penn's
 Daily Pennsylvanian and The Daily Collegian at Penn State -- have refused to
 publish it, while others have faced protest and vandalism for having run the
 ad.  Saboteurs stole and destroyed the entire run of Brown University's
 student newspaper so the reading public would not see Horowitz's ad.  For more
 information on Horowitz and his efforts, visit www.frontpagemag.com.
     The Pennsylvania Leadership Conference has been host to many distinguished
 Americans, including Lynne V. Cheney, Walter Williams, Jack Kemp, Alan Keyes,
 William Bennett, and Newt Gingrich.  The two-day conference will take place at
 the Harrisburg Holiday Inn East on April 20 and 21.  Registration is $69 per
 person or $99 for two people.  More information is available at
 www.paleadership.org or by calling 717-232-5919.
 
                Speaker: David Horowitz, author and commentator
                             Date: Friday, April 20
                   Location: Holiday Inn East, Harrisburg PA
                        Topic: The Art of Political War
