Description: This October 27, 1967 article published in the Guilford College student newspaper, The Guilfordian, reports on the progress at the second meeting hosted at Guilford College regarding the racial discrimination against potential “Negro” customers at the Imperial Barber Shop. The shop refused to cut the hair of “Negro” customers, and students and faculty at the College met to decide if further action should be taken. An increasing number of African American students enrolled at Guilford needed access to such services, bringing the issue of civil rights closer to the Guilford College campus.
