Description: This article from the Summer 1970 issue of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro's (UNCG) Alumni News profiles five black UNCG graduates and one current student about their experience at the university which had, at the time, a black enrollment of 242, or 3.7 percent. Social issues surrounding integration and UNCG's transformation into a coeducational facility are discussed, as are such issues as respect for black housekeeping staff, residential segregation on campus, hypocrisy among students who considered themselves tolerant, and low expectations from faculty members. One student also discusses his involvement with the Neo-Black Society, a student group.
