'Caturday: Black Wildcat

Shown below is the cover of Black Wildcat, an image borrowed from Black Villanova: An Oral History. Take a scroll through this amazing resource, especially this month as we celebrate Black History Month.

“On April 23, 1969, the Black Student League (BSL) published the first edition of the Black Wildcat. The unmistakable clenched fist on the front cover sent a clear signal to the Villanova community that the BSL was clearly influenced by the larger Black Power movement. With its controversial articles and opinion pieces, the Black Wildcat served to educate the Villanova community about the experiences of black students on a predominately white campus.”
