Changes in the Constitution of the Neo Black Society

Date: April 5, 1973

Author: Neo Black Society

Biographical/Historical abstract: The Neo-Black Society is a student organization at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro started in 1968 to promote unity among African American students.

Additional contributor: Michael Curtis

Description: These changes in the constitution of the Neo-Black Society, a UNCG student organization, were proposed at a time when the organization was redefining its role amid controversies of the group's classification as a student organization at UNCG. The proposed changes reflect a broadening of the group's mission to include all students, not just African American students, and to support work in all Greensboro communities working toward racial justice. Curtis was an attorney hired by a group of students who were suing the university and the Neo-Black Society for racial discrimination.
