Neo-Black Society Records

The Neo-Black Society was founded in 1968 in response to growing concerns about the support and acceptance of black students on campus. In 1973, funding for the Neo-Black Society was un-expectantly cut by the student senate prompting an immediate backlash and protest by students.; Funding was eventually restored after negotiations between the NBS and the student senate. The records of the Neo-Black Society include correspondence, reports, flyers, programs, meeting minutes, and budgets documenting the activity of the Neo-Black Society from 1969-2011.
