African American Studies Program Leaves Lasting Legacy

The African American Studies program at the University of Montana is celebrating its 41st anniversary. A reunion this fall brought back nearly 100 alumni to campus for a three day event. Originally called the "Black Studies Program," classes began in 1968 with only 7 students. Today 114 students are involved in the program. UM News reporter Ashley Korslien and photographer Eri Okazaki found out how the program is leaving a lasting legacy for students on campus.
