Ebony Affair picture's caption was incorrect

To the Editor:

The caption for the picture of the Ebony Affair on p. 10 of The Tech Friday, March 8, 1985 demonstrates The Tech's ignorance of MIT minority affairs. The caption reads, "The BSU celebrates its 10th anniversary Saturday night at the Ebony Affair."

The Ebony Affair is sponsored by the Black Graduate Students' Association (BGSA) not the Black Students' Union (BSU) (they are not the same). We were celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Ebony Affair not of the BSU. Finally, the BSU was founded in 1968: 1985-1968=17 not 10 -- count it.
