Article: "W&L Frustrating for blacks"

Subject

Black Student Life

Description


The Shenandoah Bureau, now an obsolete newspaper, reported in several instances on the treatment of black students at Washington and Lee. In this article, journalist Steve Pockbass examines the frustration of black students, interviewing a plethora of individuals with myriad views on the lack of success and progress made on the campus since its first black student matriculated. Among other problems, students cite that the small numbers of black students and traditions that exclude black students from participating in social activities with their peers and the lack of professional black men and women in positions that aren’t inferior to white professionals combine to make black students feel isolated.
