DIGITAL: African-Americans at the University of Wisconsin (1875-1969) #BlackOnCampus

Digital exhibit at the University of Wisconsin Libraries on African Americans at the institutions. Curated by Harvey D. Long. Shared at the #docnowcommunity meeting in St. Louis by Samantha Abrams, a really fantastic young scholar and one of the researchers who worked with the documents.

The Black Peoples Alliance organized a strike. The student strikers demanded an increase in minority recruitment and a Black studies department. On February 12, 1969 Governor Knowles called out the National Guard. via African-Americans at the UW (1875-1969) by Harvey Long
