*Breaking* Vassar Speaker Denied Entry To The U.S.

German publisher and former activist Karl-Dietrich Wolff, who is scheduled to speak at Vassar, was denied entry into the U.S.

According to the Guardian, Wolff was not allowed to enter JFK airport this weekend. "He had been invited to speak at the academic conference at Vassar College because he took part in the beginning of the civil rights movement as a high school exchange student in the US in the early 1960s and founded the Black Panther Solidarity Committee," the article states.

Cappy commented to the Guardian on the matter: "He could thus share his biographical experience with the international academic community assembled at the conference, which features, among others, such prominent speakers as Angela Davis," she said.
