Article "Black and White"
Article "Black and White"
In this article, the author discussed how the main campus of the University was “truly integrated” for the first time. In the fall of 1968, five full-time black students were admitted to the main campus. The author claimed that there had been reports that the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) was “applying pressure” to the University to integrate its faculty. The author also claimed that there had been talks of the University doing a faculty exchange program with a Historically Black University called Virginia Union University, as Virginia Union was doing a similar program with Randolph-Macon College. Virginia Union expressed much willingness to participate in this program with the University of Richmond. The Collegian urged more complete integration, as the white students had only had limited contact with black people throughout their lives. The author felt that they deserved to get a chance to experience the “educated Negro,” rather than the negative depiction of black people they saw through the media in cities such as Chicago, Detroit, Watts, etc. The author claimed that the University could not claim to be a true liberal arts institution without providing its students the opportunity to be exposed to all “races, creeds, colors, and social backgrounds” through the process of full integration.
