Black Purdue Watch Party

February 12, 2021 @ 3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 3:00 pm on Friday, repeating until February 26, 2021

Drawing upon numerous sources, including books on Purdue, newspaper archives, yearbooks and nearly 25 hours of personal interviews with Black alumni, this documentary begins at a time when Black students were denied campus food and housing, were barred from campus social life and banned from college sports. It records the subsequent decades of struggle, the on-campus protests in the 1960s and the steady progress over the years that accorded Black students equal rights.
