Black 14 UW Breezeway booth SA

Learning about the Black 14

Gary Mascarenas asks Leslie Waggoner, archivist, and Sara Davis, university archivist, a question about the display of various historical items about the University of Wyoming Black 14. The items were on display at a booth by the American Heritage Center and the Black Student Alliance at the Wyoming Union Breezeway on Wednesday. Part of the University of Wyoming’s Black History Month programming, the items on display include original press releases from the Black 14’s dismissal from the 1969 UW football team, Coach Eaton arm bands and a poem by one member of the Black 14, Ivie Anderson.
