The African American Studies Program and the MSU Library Archives Present:
Nothing New Under The Sun: The History of Black Students ant MSU

This timeline highlights Black student involvement starting in the late 1960's with the enrollment of MSU's first African American student Richard Holmes (1965) and Afro-American Plus, the first Black Student organization on MSU's campus. The exhibit also highlights student activism and involvement through the decades and the importance of Black Student Organizations at Predominately White Institutions.
This exhibit was made possible by submissions from Alumni, MSU Archives and Current Members of Black Student Organizations.
This exhibit is open to the public from now until the end of March.
