Neo Black Society
The Neo-Black Society (NBS) is a student organization formed in 1968 to serve the needs of African Americans at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and the Greensboro community, and to promote unity among the university's African American students. In 1973, amidst charges of black separatism and discriminatory membership practices, the student government threatened to remove funding from the group. Later that year, several white students brought a lawsuit against the university and NBS to integrate the club. The Neo-Black Society remains a popular student organization on campus today.
