This is a program handout for a April 27, 1971 Open Campus event for black students at the University of Richmond. The program outlines the day's activities and the various campus events available for attendance. These events include a campus tour, a debate, and a general assembly. The program asserts that the University of Richmond offers "the opportunity for students' intellectual development, personal and group recreation, and social involvement" The program goes on to recognize: "...U of R is not good enough. Our community is deficient in many ways. One major area is our lack of diversity among students." The program further states that the student leaders of the University of Richmond's campus want to change this issue and invite the students participating in the program to consider joining the campus community. The program also highlights the individual campus members that participated in hosting the event.
