What It’s Like Being A Black Student At A Mostly White College

A group of black students at the UCLA School of Law create this video called “33,” a reference to the total number of black students in the school’s 1,100-member student body. The purpose of the video is to “raise awareness of the disturbing emotional toll placed upon students of color” in predominantly white institutions.

Black students make up 3% of the law school student body, as compared to 13% of the nation.

“When you talk about diversity on campus, it turns into a political or ideological debate. You forget who it’s really about, you forget the people, you forget what it’s like on the ground and no one pays attention to the 33.”
