LaKeisha Wolf

On April 20, 2001 Black Caucus President LaKeisha Wolf received an anonymous letter filled with racial slurs, profanity, and an explicit threat on her life. The University provided Wolf with police security and offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the letter author.

The event triggered months of racial tension, protests, sit-ins (most notably “the Village”), and led to a comprehensive plan established by the University to make Penn State a more “welcoming place” for minorities.
