Title

poster for Brooklyn College CORE

Description


This is a 1963 poster for the Brooklyn College CORE chapter that has been defaced. The word 'negroes' was scratched out and replaced with 'niggers'. It demonstrates that even in the City University of New York which had 'developed a reputation as a bastion of liberalism’, these types of racist incidents were not uncommon. Brooklyn College like most of CUNY at this time was mostly White.
The image comes from an editorial by Alan Friedman, 'The Complacent Society', in the Brooklyn College student newspaper.
