Last month the University of Alabama made headlines when campus newspaper reporters exposed racism against a sorority pledge. The conversations that stemmed from that event inspired the Mallet Assembly, a group founded in 1961 to be an integration and racism watchdog at the university, to address what they describe as ongoing racism and a segregation mentality. Members of the group say this mentality is deeply embedded in Greek life at the school, and has a broader impact on student employment and other factors. In this video, members of the group talk about their experiences, and host a demonstration mirroring the reaction to George Wallace's infamous 1963 "segregation forever" speech
