What’s in a Name?

Mimeographed letter from the Third World Community 1981-1982 academic year

Among the student cultural organizations that came to represent the “Third World” community in the eyes of the administration were La Unidad, the Asian Student Association (ASA), and the Association of Pan-African Unity (APAU). Communicating especially with the Committee for the Multi-Racial Community, these organizations spoke for their peers on matters of shared importance and sought to present themselves as a joint force for the larger community. Disagreement between the student organizations and the Committee for the Multi-Racial Community remained constant as the Committee struggled with decisions the student cultural organizations felt should be left to them, such as the selection of the Third World Requirement title in 1981.
