In 1846, Beloit College’s administration proclaimed they prohibited racial discrimination in admissions as they claimed to “forever allow students to enter and receive its entire benefits without distinction of color.” It was not until the 1880s when Beloit College had its first enrollment of African-American students. The purpose of the 'Racism at Beloit College' art exhibit is to visually create a storyline that exposes racial discrimination and the repetitive demands for progress within the institution and student community to this day (from the Black Demands ‘69 to #OccupyResLife). The exhibit starts from the 1890s until 2016, displaying themes of “diversity,” “forgotten” racism, continual demands, marches and protests for equality. We continue to see racism and exclusion throughout Beloit’s history, and the community continues to ask, “What we can do? How can we create change that will positively affect us for the future? Do we keep making the same mistakes? How can we hold ourselves accountable? Has there been progress?”
