Wisconsin Black Student Union marches in honor of Black Student Strike anniversary

50 years after black UW-Madison students demanded several changes to campus during a strike, the Wisconsin Black Student Union recreated the movement. In 1969, BSU President Rashid Rashad led the strike aimed at calling on the university to make 13 changes to be made to the campus. Some of their most notable demands were the creation of a Black Student Center and an African American Studies Department. The strike lasted for two weeks as over 10,000 students protested in support of their Black peers.
