President of the Freshman Class at Howard University, Michael Harris, seated across from President of Howard University, James M. Nabrit, Jr. Harris claims students feel disconnected from faculty, administration, and university. Nabrit, Jr. says there are always gaps between generations, but they are bound together in wanting to see everybody, regardless of race, class, religion, or economics being able to advance in society. Conditions of African Americans have improved over the years. Harris states he's surprised each day how little African Americans know about their own culture, such as students not knowing who Charles Drew was despite living in Drew Hall. Marie Frazier, widow of author Edward Franklin Frazier who taught and wrote at Howard University, states the older generation is too critical of youth. Youth must be allowed to find their own way, make their own mistakes as all people do and have.
