Title

"The Foundations of the Black Student Movement"

Description

This black-and-white photograph show an African-American student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill whose shirt reads "THINK BLACK INK." Black Ink was an African-American student newspaper founded in 1969 at UNC. It served as a counterpoint to the main student newspaper, the Daily Tar Heel. The original motto of Black Ink was “Voice of Black Liberation,” a reference to continued African-American oppression, and the publication is still in print today.
