Michelle Obama's Senior Thesis Quote

A passage from Michelle Obama's 1985 Princeton senior thesis t

"[i]t is possible that Black individuals either chose to or felt pressure to come together with other Blacks on campus because of the belief that Blacks must join in solidarity to combat a White oppressor."
From 2/29/2008 Media Matters

Michelle Obama (LaVaughn Robinson at the time) went to Princeton majored in sociology and received a certificate in African-American Studies. Her Senior Thesis was titled Princeton Educated Blacks and the Black Community (96 pages, 1985, Sociology Department, Located at Mudd Library). She examined how the attitudes of black alumni have changed over the course of their time at the University. "Will they become more or less motivated to benefit the Black community?"
