The Minneapolis Spokesman article, “Students Give Lesson,” appeared on October 25, 1935 and commended the University of Minnesota students who protested President Coffman’s support for segregated housing on campus. While applauding the student efforts, the Spokesman calls for an organization of “business people” who could advocate for African American student rights.
