Abstract
White students sit on the lawn in front of a campus building on May 24, 1969, holding signs that read "We Support BSO Demands. Black Autonomy - Black Studies." The student rally was in support of the Black Student Organization's demands to the college administration for greater involvement in academic, social, and admissions policies and programs.
Members of Get Ourselves Together (G.O.T.) were involved in these protests. According to an April 18, 1969 article in The Index, G.O.T. was a "white student organization which is attempting to make white students aware of the causes of America's current racial strife and the necessity of Black Power, for special education projects."
