MLK at Tarleton State

JANUARY 25–Students at a Texas college threw a Martin Luther King Jr. Day party that featured attendees wearing gang apparel and Afro wigs, carrying malt liquor, handguns, and fried chicken, and even one woman dressed as Aunt Jemima. Photos of the January 15 event were discovered on a page by a Tarleton State University sophomore who heads the school’s NAACP chapter. A selection of party photos can be found on the following pages.

    That’s my college almamater…very redneck. I won’t even go into the spirit group called the Purple Poo which wear sheets over their head in public. They always made me think of a purple KKK.
