This Video Made By A Group Of Outraged College Students Is Both Chilling And Beautiful

UCLA students share some shocking statistics about their school’s diversity (or lack thereof).

1. “The Black Bruins” is a spoken-word piece that raises awareness about the underrepresentation of African-American males in UCLA’s student body.

2. The poet, Sy Stokes, is a “Black/Cherokee/Chinese, third year African American Studies major” at UCLA.

 

He is gathering support for this petition demanding “more effective diversity initiatives” at UCLA, and on campuses around the country.

3. The powerful video is sparking a lot of conversation about race and higher education. Find more information about Sy’s initiatives here.
