Union issues apology letter for past racial discrimination

On February 9, the Union College Board of Trustees voted to approve a letter nearly a year in the making—a letter of apology to alumni who suffered racial discrimination while attending Union College.

The idea started with the stories of Oscar Harriott, a man whose family exprienced racism at Union College throughout the 1940s-60s. He spoke for a Martin Luther King Day event in the spring of 2014 and to the cast of Union’s “Fifty Years Later,” a dramatic production about the Civil Rights Movement.

Union student's essay wins McDonald's Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Essay Contest

When Union College sophomore J-Fiah Reeves heard about the opportunity to enter the McDonald’s Martin Luther Kind, Jr. Essay Contest, he jumped at the chance to explore the life and ideas of the civil rights leader.

The contest asked Nebraska students to write what King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech meant to them. “I thought it would be a great opportunity to learn more about Dr. King and listen to the whole speech,” said Reeves.
