Excellent production and historical info. Does an African American history class really have just one Black student in it, taught by a white professor? I wouldn’t want all professors in an AA Studies major to be Black but would expect the majority to be. With RGT and Provost Loboa in charge, I believe diversity at SMU will increase. I’ve seen that diversity has increased quite a bit over the last two years.

During the Q & A after the film, one of the creators said it was directly based upon a student's experience from 4-5 years ago. One would presume/hope that it was an isolated incident.

No link? So was this purged from the internet? Bad for business or what? Is this going to be the first scene from Black At SMU 2?
