Description: This May 7, 1971, article from The Carolinian, the student newspaper of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) discusses a symposium held by the UNCG Faculty Student Forum on May 4, 1971 to discuss race relations at the university. Social conditions and potential curriculum changes were among the topics discussed. Neo Black Society coordinator Larry Williamson listed five necessary changes: (1) recruitment and admission of more black males, (2) more grants and financial aid, (3) required Afro American studies courses, (4) more black speakers, and (5) more black involvement in campus media. The Neo Black Society, a UNCG student organization, was founded in 1968 and was the subject of controversy in 1973 when the Student Government Association attempted to remove its funding.
