Strong black leadership and
male and female equality among
African-Americans will be ad
dressed in tonight’s speech by the
chairman of black studies for San
Francisco State University.
Oba T’Shaka will speak at the
Culture Center at 7 p.m. about ideas
from his new book “Return to the
African Mother Principle of Male
and Female Equality,” which is
about male and female equality in
Vcnita Kelley, assistant profes
sor of communication studies and
African and African-American
studies, said T’Shaka’s book de
scribed an achieved state called
To achieve twinlineo, a female’s
challenge is to master her mascu
line side while remaining feminine;
a male is to master his feminine side
while keeping his masculinity,
Kelley said.
T’Shaka explains in his book
that a just society only can be
achieved if males and females are
equal, Kelley said.
“A just society restores respect,
love and balance,” T’Shaka wrote
in his book.
Kelley said students who at
tended the speech would learn “that
intellectual learning is not just about
getting a job. It’s about expanding
one’s mind and contributing to the

a vision for the future and what to
do in society to achieve equality.
T’Shaka is a good example of

American Indian, Chicano and

nesses and holding team meetings.
Linda Wilson, the city council
woman leading the steering commit
tee for the project, said the building
commission decided the current mas
ter plan would best serve the needs of
city and county operations.
“We have studied this to death for
years,” she said.
Hille, who is overseeing the project,
said the three-story building would
take 18 to 22 months to build.
During that time, Hille said, he will
help decide where the offices will
move and how the interior of the build
ing will be configured. The city and
county offices will fill the first two
floors with a secured parking garage
The third floor will remain unoc
cupied until it is needed for further
government expansion, Hille said,
which will cost less than building on
top of a second floor in the future, he
The rest of the project may be done
within three or four years, depending
on how offices are moved, he said.
Revenue bonds issued by the build
ing commission will pay for the project
over 30 years.
