Title

Editorial "Product of Neglect: The Absence Of A Black Social Life"

Description

“Product of Neglect: The Absence of a Black Social Life,” is an editorial published in The Collegian on October 1st, 1971. The article encourages black students to get all that they can out of the University of Richmond, and what they cannot find at UR they can find at Virginia Commonwealth University or Virginia Union University. The article goes on to say that the white students at UR also have trouble in their social life due to lack of events. The editorial says, “One realizes just how little there is on campus for 10 black brothers and three sisters at Westhampton.” Additionally, none of the black students in the article are named. The article goes on to suggest a black mixer as a solution to better the black student experience, and publicize the black student recruitment program.
