Description:UHURU was the Black student newspaper, and later the multicultural student newspaper at the American University. It was published by the Organization of African and Afro-American Students at the America University (OASATAU) between 1970-1987, and the Black Student Alliance (BSA) between 1987-1996. Between 1983 and mid-1989, UHURU was published as a column in The Eagle student newspaper. In October 1989, UHURU ran as an independent publication once more. In 1993, UHURU expanded its audience to encompass AU's multicultural community, and in 1996, the UHURU publication changed its name to Mosaic. The University Archives does not have a complete run of UHURU.
