"The Umbra Poets," a group of young black poets, presented selections of their writing in the Students’ Building.  The poetry dealt with "aspects of social and racial reality," and was sponsored by the OPA. The group took its name from Umbra, a literary magazine that first appeared the preceeding winter presenting "the experience of being a negro, especially in America" and hoping to arouse "that quality of human awareness often termed ‘social consciousness’.
