Title

Letter to the Editor "SOBA Complaints"

Description

This is a letter from the President of the Student Organization for Black Awareness (SOBA), Wanda V. Starke, to the editor of the Collegian. She wrote this letter to address the school's lack of enthusiasm for the Black History Week events that SOBA had planned. Not only was there very little white student involvement, but the staff that had a part in planning the events did not even show up. She wrapped her complaint by saying "the implications of this experience are that the University of Richmond is either anti-black or apathetic towards blacks."
