Article "Grants Open Doors for Minorities, But UR Social Life Remains Closed"

Description

In an article published in The Collegian on February 24th 1983, called "Grants Open Doors for Minorities, But UR Social Life Remains Closed," black students expressed their frustration with the lack of social opportunities for them at the University of Richmond. The Connecticut General Insurance Company (CGIC) gave the university $100,000 to enroll ten black student scholars. Beverly Stallings, one of the CGIC Scholars said, "People here don't know how to deal with blacks. They don't know what we look like or how we dress or anything."
