Fight over art legacy may affect college's future

An attorney for Fisk University accused Tennessee's attorney general of wanting to close the school during the first day of a trial to determine whether it can sell a share in its famous Stieglitz art collection.
The Nashville-based, historically black university ranked 118 in the country by US News and World Report and is included in the Princeton Review's best 360 colleges.
At issue is whether Fisk can change the conditions the late painter Georgia O'Keeffe placed upon her bequest of 101 works of art to the school. Fisk argues it is in such financial straits that it is in danger of shutting down and cannot maintain the collection as agreed.


(NNPA) - As Fox News and other media under the grip of the conservative right wing continue a steady drumbeat against U.S. Representatives Charles Rangel and Maxine Waters, Democrats and those on the political left grow increasingly concerned that Rangel and Waters are being successfully converted into the new Willie and Wilma Horton.
