One of CIC's primary activities was to hold biweekly meetings called "community dialogues" to discuss broad issues such as racism, police sensitivity, education, and employment discrimination within the city of San Diego. The agenda topic of the day was education. The school board and other administrators had been invited, but were not well represented at the meeting. Some discussion took place in spite of this, and issues raised included poor counseling and advising services to students, the lack of minority culture and history in the curriculum, testing biases, discipline, and the underachievement of minority groups. Many felt that compensatory education services, like public education itself, served to reinforce white racism, holding the minority student to be inferior, and teaching to and upholding the values of the white majority and its culture. The meetings were moderated by CIC Executive Director Carroll Waymon, and his voice is often the first one heard in the audio recordings of the meetings. The tape constitutes the minutes, but a summary consists of 12 handwritten pages of stenographic-notebook paper, with tape-recorder counter numbers (01-724) at the left beside speakers' names, and comments, Gregg shorthand notes, quotations and actions at the right or across pages.
