The Quest for a Black Culture House

The quest for a Black Culture House began in the fall of 1969. After several months of inaction by the administration, the BSU held a sit-in at Henion Manor. The demonstrators were indefinitely expelled shortly after, which lead to another sit-in at Keane Hall. Suspensions were reduced to probations after students, faculty, and community members lobbied against the administration's harsh disciplinary measures.
