Description: This March 7, 1969 article in the Guilford College student newspaper, The Guilfordian, announces the discontent of black students with the college administration’s responses to their requests for black faculty members and courses focused on the African-American culture and history. After many meetings with administrators and attempts to bring events and speakers to campus with little interest from the rest of the community, Brothers and Sisters in Blackness (BASIB) wrote this article in an effort to connect with fellow students and gain wider support on such issues.
