The Malcolm X Lounge was created in 1970 when black students occupied the ROTC lounge in Hartley Hall. The ROTC itself had been banned from campus since the 1968 protests. Dean Henry Coleman's office was also occupied during the effort to rename and repurpose the lounge. Current Attorney General Eric Holder was one of the occupiers' negotiators during the event, which was successful in renaming and repurposing the lounge.
