Document Description

The flyer urged students: "Do not eat at Lenoir, Chase, or at the Pine Room!!!" adding, "Isn't it time we students undergo a bit of inconvenience to support these workers who are fighting for the welfare and dignity of themselves and their families?" To circumvent the use of campus dining facilities, the BSM and the foodworkers set up a soul food cafe in Manning Hall.
