Students of the 1997-1998 Afrikan Student Union (currently the Black Student Union) were active participants in UC Irvine’s Rainbow Festival and Conference in November 1997. These photographs were included in scrapbooks created by the organization to document events and activities during the academic year.
The festival was founded in November 1984 as a campus wide celebration of cultural and ethnic diversity and has remained one of UC Irvine’s most festive traditions. The popular multicultural program has served as a model for numerous other colleges and universities.
