Carleton College Archives: History of BIPOC Student Organizations at Carleton

Negro Affairs Committee (NAC)

1967 - 1968 

First assembled in the Fall of 1967, this short-lived but highly influential group reorganized in the Spring of 1968 as SOUL. This marks the first organization of students of color on campus in the school's history. This group inspired many of the preceding organizations to build community, challenge hate, and celebrate culture on campus and beyond.
