Confrontation: Black vs. White

Subject

Recruitment and retention of students of color at Ursinus College

Description

The article is a brief recounting of black students at Swarthmore College in their fight for acceptance. In their protest, they ask for programs of education and to promote the realization of the Black struggle. The Afro-American students Society of Swarthmore sets goals to increase openings for black youth, expose and realize the history of Swarthmore and its connection to racism, and to create educative programs regarding black people, their history and struggle, and to increase even black staff. This event, as Byron Jackson writes, connects directly to the Ursinus College Black Student Alliance, in their quest for approval or denial. The two groups share the goal of increased black participation, even by black women as well, in their educative process and furthermore talk on the existence of black students on campus, and how the organizations future will affect it.
