Black Student Admits Hanging ‘White Only,’ ‘Black Only’ Signs Near School Bathrooms, Water Fountains
"The goal of the signs and project was to see what people’s reactions would be to them...”
Cries of racism broke out across the campus of the University of Buffalo this week when students found Jim Crow-esque signs in a building on campus.
Someone had posted “White Only” and “Black Only” signs near several bathrooms and water fountains in Clemens Hall.
“It brought up feelings of the past of a past that our generation has never seen which I think is why it was so shocking for us to see,” Micah Oliver, president for the Black Student Union, tells ABC 27.
More than 100 students turned out to a Black Student Union meeting to discuss the signs.
