Blast from the Past: RAPP on the News

In 1990 - back when RAPP's full name did involve two p-words ("Pilot Project") - CBS Evening News explored issues of racism in higher education. Below is the segment, which used the University of Cincinnati as its source for exploring the subject. Of course, RAPP was highlighted in the segment!

It's great to see so many people important to RAPP's past - of course, Mrs. Linda Bates "Ma" Parker. Also, Dr. Eric Abercrumbie who is still a professor and the director of both Ethnic Programs & Services and the African American Cultural & Resource Center.

Hopefully, we'll see some of these faces at the 25 Year Reunion on Saturday, May 14th, 2011!

  1. What a great find! This has made RAPP's founding much more real to me than just the pictures and story. Thanks for posting.
