Black Culture Week, sponsored by the Afro-American Society, was subtitled "The Beauty of Black." At the beginning of this week, President Knight issued a statement supporting the events and speakers, and encouraging all students to attend. He also indicated that he had resigned from a segregated country club to which he had belonged. Along with speakers like Fannie Lou Hamer and Dick Gregory, Black Culture Week included exhibits, lectures, and the publication of Harambee, a collection of articles and poems by black students. Harambee included a list of ten demands to the administration.
