Digitized select documents relating to the Black Action Movement (BAM) I, II, and III on the University of Michigan campus, 1970-1987. These materials (mostly from the records of the Office of the President with some articles from The Michigan Daily and the University Record) is intended to provide an overview of the Black Action Movement (BAM) demands and the university's immediate response in each of the three phases of the Black Action Movement. They represent a small portion of the documentation of BAM contained in the records of various university units, personal papers, photograph collections, and publications held by the Bentley Historical Library and available to all researchers (with some limited restrictions due to student records protected by FERPA, personnel records, and certain administrative records subject to review).
