Black Student Alumni Oral History Project Trailer
From Benjamin Goldman
A narrative of the experiences of Black students at Penn State during a climatic time in the nation and across university campuses, in the wake of Student Activism, Civil Rights, and Black Power. These Alumni share how they felt, lived, and survived with only 250 Blacks students amongst 25,000 White students. The overall narratives present a deeper story of how community and legacy prevail for generations as well as the continual struggle faced by Black Americans throughout history.
