A BSU Newsletter from October 24, 1968 calling members to attend Black Thursday, Oct. 31, 1968 to protest the selection of White, blonde women as Homecoming Queen candidates. The newsletters asks BSU members to handout flyers and write on blackboards to promote the event. The newsletter also mentions the BSU's takeover of the Buchanan Street project SWAP, a Thanksgiving food drive, a tutoring at Sacred Heart Grammar School and a meeting at Joe Marshall's house the upcoming Saturday.

The two following pages are flyers from the Irish Student Union and the Black Student Union protesting the "institutional ethnic prejudice in the election of the the Homecoming Queen."
