Title

Article "Racial Awareness Sessions Try To Overcome Barriers"

Description

This article outlines a group of University of Richmond and Virginia Union University students holding several racial awareness sessions at Center House in the Churchill neighborhood of Richmond in an attempt to break down barriers between black and white students. Betty Hamlet, head of the UR committee discussed the help of the Human Relations in putting together the five pilot committees heading the sessions. The awareness sessions are what Hamlet described as “a sensitivity type thing…situations where you are just thrown together and are trying to become friends.” She described the purpose as trying to understand where the other person is coming from. The article ends with the statement that notice will be given before the next session.
