Description: This report signed by Kendon Smith, Ernest Griffin, Harriet Kupferer, E. Doris McKinney, and Frankling D. Parker, and dated March 30, 1973, is the report of a faculty committee appointed by University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) Chancellor James Sharbrough Ferguson as part of the administrative review of the UNCG Student Government Association's (SGA) decision to reclassify (removed funding and recognition from) the Neo-Black Society. The committee found that the SGA decision involved questionable evidence and procedures. The SGA decision was overturned, resulting in an eventual legal case leading to the Neo-Black Society's reinstatement as a recognized and funded organization.
