On January 14, 1969, a group of about 70 African American students—along with community activists—occupied administrative offices on the first floor of Morrill Hall with a list of demands for then-president Malcolm Moos. That demonstration led directly to the creation of the Department of African American & African Studies, now celebrating its 50th anniversary.
The TV show "Black-ish" recently took on the issue of colorism in the African American community. Keith Mayes, professor of African American studies, explains what colorism is, and how everyone can play a role in ending it.
