Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection contains the Black Position Paper of 1968, the Black Manifesto of 1968, and correspondence with Chancellor Thomas H. Eliot concerning these documents and goals.  Also included are documents relating the Brookings protest and other documents created by the student group.  The collection also contains documents detailing action taken in 1978 and 1998 by the Association of Black Students and the administrators of Washington University.

Collection Historical Note

In 1968, the Association of Black Students submitted a Black Position Paper to the University administration outlining the areas of Washington University they urgently felt needed improvement as regarded black students.  The student group urged change in black student enrollment, treatment of blacks on campus, and the introduction of a Black Studies program to the curriculum.  These points were expanded in the Black Manifesto of 1968.  Protests in Brookings Hall in 1968 led to more discussion of these topics between students and faculty and gradually changes occurred.  The Association of Black Students (ABS) continued to support and work towards change, prompting awareness in 1978 and 1998 that more modifications of the status quo were necessary to complete the goals originally proposed in 1968.
