Description: This letter from UNCG Dean of Students James Allen to Richard Robinson Jr., assistant to the President of the UNC system, outlines all the actions taken in the prior month regarding the reclassification of the Neo-Black Society as a student organization. Ultimately, the by-laws of both the Neo-Black Society and the Student Government Association were changed to be all inclusive. As a result, the Neo-Black Society was able to maintain its classification making it eligible to receive funding and university support.
