Black Students Grouping Together

1971 - Indiana/West Lafayette – college town - White

My first recollection of racism was in college and related to Black students grouping together apart from White students as well as there being Black only fraternities and sororities. I thought everyone would just mix together. I did feel that all Black groups were much louder. However, in my grade school and high school there were very few races other than White, but of those there they were more likely to be Asian and Asian Indians. Of my class mates that were Black, the ones I think of now were adopted.
