"Ethnic Groups: 'An Essence of Brotherhood'" News Article

Description

This news article written by Sara Wood offers a brief description of the main nonwhite ethnic groups present at Pacific in 1971. Wood mainly offers perspectives on group activities of the Hawaiians, especially the annual Lu'au which Pacific University is known for, and also discusses the topic of greater representation for the black student population. Also mentioned are Chicanos, and one Jewish student. On the topic of black students at Pacific, it references the opinions of two black students and shares a final thought of hope wishing for the emergence of "an essence of Brotherhood" from sharing in these cultural events. Written in the backdrop of increased visibility and size of ethnic groups at Pacific that raised tensions especially about their ability to organize into campus groups.
