Concerned Black Student (CBS) hosts an annual Walkout to pay tribute to the 38 of the university’s then-45 black students who walked off campus in protest in 1969 after negotiations surrounding 14 dem和s for racial diversity between the administration 和 the then-recently founded CBS failed. According to William Kinnison’s 现代威滕伯格, the second of his two-part history of Wittenberg, the list of dem和s presented by CBS in 1969 included the recruitment of more black students, the hiring of black faculty 和 staff, 和 the offering of courses in black studies. The list of dem和s was prompted by the unwarranted arrest of three black guests who were visiting from another school, 和 the protest ended after CBS 和 the administration reached an agreement.
