‘Open Door’ traces early history of Black Student Union

Did you know that the largest and most active GRJC student organization in the 1970s was the Black Student Union? BSU’s first adviser was new Language Arts instructor Pat Pulliam, followed by counselor Tempi Hoskins. Established to celebrate the beauty of blackness and the collective strength of the race, the group served as a focal point for a rapidly growing African American population at the college.

Read about this and much more in Open Door, the newly published 100-year history of GRJC-GRCC. The book can be purchased at Schuler Books, the GRCC Library or online here.
