    Biography

    The Black Caucus at the University of California San Francisco was founded in May of 1968, one month after the death of Martin Luther King, Jr. It is open to all black men and women on this campus.
    During the late 1960s and 1970s the Black Caucus was instrumental in the establishment of an Affirmative Action Office, minority training programs and focused attention on the need for increased minority student enrollment at the UCSF campus.
