Dr. Brown begins his oral history by describing the high school he attended and the extracurricular activities he was involved in.

Dr. Brown describes some of the broader social and political issues when he arrived at Denison in the late 1960’s – particularly the Civil Rights Movement and protests over the Vietnam War. He addresses his initial reactions to being a Denison student, particularly with respect to the socioeconomic status of many students on campus. Dr. Brown spells out some of the organizations he was involved in at Denison, elaborates on the racial and ethnic composition of the Denison community at the time, and describes the climate for minority students. He talks about the power of the Black community at Denison and the role and effectiveness of the Black Student Union.
