My journey here on this BlacKeaning tour has been a strenuous one. During my research I was utterly appalled. My main focus for the group is student organization. While researching I learned that there really wasn’t any African American students that were in the student council and weren’t any until about 1962. There wasn’t another African American student council representative until the 70’s. With that being said you can see why my topic is a little strenuous. I utilized the student yearbooks to help achieve and gain the knowledge that I needed in order to execute my part of the tour. I utilized our alumni department in our school to see if there were any black student council representatives that I could possibly meet with to get their story on what it was like to be a black student here at Kean and what struggles they had to go through to obtain their spot in the student council.
