Behind the Archives Door: Tuesday, Feb. 2, 4-5 p.m. – Renee Simms, African American Studies, Documents of Cultural Shift: Reading our Campus Letters, Student Newspapers, Yearbooks, and Course Catalogues from 1965 to 1971

CALLOUT_BTAD_Feb2Join us in the Archives & Special Collections space for light refreshments and an informal lecture.

When did our university begin discussions about adding courses on African American culture? What were campus discussions in 1965 about racial integration of fraternities and sororities?  Who participated in those discussions?  How did the Black Student Union come about? These are some of the questions that students are asked to consider during a class in the Archives & Special Collections for Introduction to African American Studies. Join assistant professor Renee Simms as she shares this lesson and how it prepares students for institutional analysis in later class assignments.
