Author: Greensboro Daily News

Biographical/Historical abstract: The Greensboro Daily News is the former morning newspaper of Greensboro, North Carolina.

Description: This is a photocopy of part of an article published in the Greensboro Daily News on April 1, 1973, which reports on UNCG Chancellor James Ferguson's ruling that funding be restored to the Neo-Black Society, a student organization. Funding was stripped from the all black student organization when the UNCG Student Senate voted to reclassify the group based on what it viewed as racists and exclusionary membership. Chancellor Ferguson appointed a faculty committee to review the matter and they recommended reversing the Student Senate hearing based on procedural and substantive flaws.
