Written by on February 3, 2021

The Union of Black Students now known as The Black Student Union was formed on the campus of Ohio Northern University as a result of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination.  

Dr. King spoke at the university on January 11, 1968.

Less than 3 months later, on April 4, he was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee. 

The Union of Black Students was founded on May 1, 1968.

According to the 1971 ONU Yearbook: the union’s purpose is to keep any prejudice from Black students on campus and to promote a better relationship between the races on campus.
