Watch Students Discuss Ongoing Racism at the University of Alabama

Members of the historic student group Mallet continue to address institutionalized racism at the school.

Last month the University of Alabama made headlines when campus newspaper reporters exposed racism against a sorority pledge. The conversations that stemmed from that event inspired the Mallet Assembly, a group founded in 1961 to be an integration and racism watchdog at the university, to address what they describe as ongoing racism and a segregation mentality. Members of the group say this mentality is deeply embedded in Greek life at the school, and has a broader impact on student employment and other factors. In this video, members of the group talk about their experiences, and host a demonstration mirroring the reaction to George Wallace’s infamous 1963 "segregation forever" speech
