UF's Black Campus Movement


On April 15, 1971, the Black Student Union (BSU) organized a sit-in at Tigert Hall. Seventy students marched into President Stephen O’Connell’s office with a list of demands. They wanted the University to address the shortage of Black faculty and students at UF. The demonstration led to the arrest and suspension of 66 Black students.
