Black Cambridge Students Call Out School's Racial Diversity In Compelling Photo

But unlike #BlackMenOfYaleUniversity, these men are posing to draw attention to a problem at their school.

A group of black men who attend Cambridge University posed for a series of photos to send a message to their school Monday: There should be more of us. 

The Cambridge University African-Caribbean Society posted the photos of the 14 men on its Facebook page. According to ACS, the inspiration for the photos was a viral post of a group of black men from Yale University who stunted on the ‘gram last week. 

The organization wrote that while these photos aimed to remind young black people of their potential, they also wanted to draw attention to a lack of diversity at the U.K. university. 

“In 2015, only 15 black men were accepted to Cambridge as undergrads. They got together to show just how insanely bad that is,” the post read. 

According to university statistics, less than 3 percent of undergraduate students accepted to Cambridge in 2015 identified as black, “mixed white and black Caribbean” or “mixed white and black African.”
