Description: This May 1, 1973, letter from University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) Chancellor James Sharbrough Ferguson to Robert Morgan, Attorney General of the State of North Carolina notifies Morgan that Ferguson has been served with a summons in the Neo-Black Society case, and asks for Morgan's assistance in the matter. On March 26, 1973, SGA had voted to reclassify (removed funding and recognition from) the Neo-Black Society. The SGA decision was overturned by university administration on the basis of faulty evidence and improper procedure by SGA, resulting in an eventual legal case that led to the Neo-Black Society's reinstatement as a recognized and funded organization.
