The Red Brick
Campus unrest continued to stimulate the expression of diverse views and airing of grievances not only in person, but also in print. The Red Bricks and The Red Brick were published by student leaders to protest a range of concerns, from the lack of student government influence in campus affairs to the quality of the offerings of the food service. Discussions of musical groups, social injustices, women’s liberation, politics, black power, racism, revolution, and birth control, at the national and local level, were also included. With each issue of the paper, the language became more profane and passionate. Students wrote some of the articles but many were borrowed from national publications. Some community members and students were displeased and complained to Dr. Kuhn, who also criticized the publication but ultimately defended the rights to free speech. Financial problems shuttered the publication after just three issues.
