George Washington U. Finds Blackface Photos in Old Yearbooks

George Washington University is facing criticism over a series of blackface photos that were found in old yearbooks from the 1960s.

According to a report from the George Washington University student newspaper, the university is currently embroiled in an internal discussion about the school’s troublesome past.

Someone at the university found blackface photos in the 1964, 1965, and 1968 editions of the school yearbook.

George Washington University President Thomas LeBlanc emphatically condemned the old yearbooks.

The George Washington University yearbook staff published a statement condemning the images from their publication, even though the student staff members were decades away from birth when the images were taken.
