Demonstration at the United Nations Against Genocidal Racism in the City University

Demonstrating at the United Nations, the President of the Black Student Union wrote this leaflet to explain how systemic racism in public education denies black and Latino students equal rights to obtain a degree. He pulls from Kenneth Clark's "Dark Ghetto" and studies conducted by David E. Lavin to build the case that admissions rules that disparately bar minority students from admission to CUNY schools tether these students to a cycle of poverty and an infringement of their human rights.
