Peralta Trustee Alona Clifton was misquoted in the March 28 issue of the Planet. She said “Compton is the closest we have in California to a historically-black community college,”not “Compton is the only historically-black community college we have in California.”  

In the same article, Mervyn Dymally was identified as a California State Senator. Dymally served in the California State Senate in the 1960s, and was later elected to the United States Congress. After retiring from Congress, he was elected to the California State Legislature as an Assemblymember, where he now serves.n
