Black Thursday Remembered

November 18, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

As part of UWO’s sesquicentennial, the Black Student Union will host Black Thursday Remembered in Reeve Ballroom A. Six members of the Oshkosh 94 will take part in a unique Q&A session led by current BSU leaders and their former BSU members’ experiences.

The event now known as Black Thursday took place on Nov. 21, 1968, when 94 African-American students demanded equal rights on campus and protested in dramatic fashion until the tactics resulted in a mass arrest and expulsion of the students.
