Revolution on Cullen

On October 1, 2012 the University of Houston sponsored “Revolution on Cullen,” a public symposium to explore the personal challenges of integrating the UH campus and PSA was there to help out and volunteer with the event. Now one of the nation’s most diverse research universities, the University of Houston admitted its first black graduate student in 1961, and its first black undergraduates in 1963. The event, introduced by UH President Renu Khator, featured two prominent alumni who spoke about their student experiences and the challenges the faced. The event included Former NBA player Don Chaney, Activist Gene Locke, and keynote speaker novelist Attica Locke who did a reading from her first novel Blackwater Rising, a novel partly set on the UH campus, followed by a signing.

Thanks to all PSA members who volunteered their time to come help out!
