Article "Blacks Rights Still Not Accepted, Hill Said"

Description

Oliver W. Hill was a civil rights activist who came to lecture at the University of Richmond in October 1987 for "The Supreme Court, the Bill of Rights and Law" series that was sponsored by UR's history department and a grant from Virginia Foundation for the Humanities and Public Policy. The article "Blacks Rights Still Not Accepted, Hill Said" published October 8th 1987, details Hill's lecture, his life, the protections black people received as a result of the 14th Amendment, and the benefits of Affirmative Action. Hill said, "When a white person is not embarrassed to admit he has a black ancestor, affirmative action will have reached its goal."
