Activism and Movements
Beloit College has a history of protesting and student activism. Therefore, it does not come as a surprise that during the era of Civil Rights and Black Power students were active participants in this culture. Their active participation saw the birth of the Black Demands, students participating in the Freedom Rides and Marches as well as creating their own and an underground newspaper. Students were able to also particpate in organizations that could not operate on campus like the Black Panther Party of Beloit and the Beloit Anti-Draft Union. The culture of protest persists in this generation of students as well.
