In the Fall of 1968, students at Southern University-New Orleans protested a proposed tuition hike at the school. In March of the following year, an organization called the Afro-American Society was formed and presented a list of demands focusing on the tuition hike, as well as the institution’s curriculum and maintenance of its facilities. The group also called for the development of a black studies department and a course on black liberation. A small number of students occupied an administration building and a boycott of classes began. Black Liberation Express was published to air the striking students’ opinions.
