African American Student Experience at Illinois: The Early Years

Professors Tamara Hoff and Vanessa Rouillon share their research on African American experience in the earliest years of the University and in Champaign-Urbana. They illustrate how African American students organized and supported one another through social organizations (such as Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.) and the local African American community's educational and social outlets (such as the Bethel AME Church). 

Chancellor Robert J. Jones will make opening remarks.
