Led by Emerson senior, Mooneyne Jackson-Amis, the group presented a list of ten demands (originally framed as "proposals") to President Chapin. Tensions rose among students, faculty, and administrators until most of the demands were met. Some of the changes included adding courses on African-American history and culture to the curriculum, hiring African-American counselors and recruiters, increasing the number of African-American students, and offering soul food twice a month in the dining hall.
