Description


Despite a tense campus atmosphere following demonstrations, the Claremont colleges moved forward with the Black Studies Center in March. The Black Student Union was successful in creating tangible change on the campuses. Specific gains include the admission of more students of color, the hiring of more Black faculty members, and the addition of Black Studies courses to the offerings. The 1969 Black Studies Center continues in 2018 as the Intercollegiate Department of Africana Studies and the Office of Black Student Affairs.
