Celebrating Black History Month

In observance of Black History Month, Dr. Zeb Baker, author and Senior Associate Director of the University Honor Program will present Miami University and the Politics of Athletic Non-discrimination.  Thursday, February 9, 2017,  King Library 320 at 7:00 pm.
 
In March 1947, Miami’s student body voted into place a non-discrimination policy in athletics, which prevented scheduling opponents that practiced segregation. The policy was the first of its kind in the Midwest and its stresses and strains played a defining role in Miami race relations for decades.
