The Student League for Black Identity was a student organization at Clemson University for a little over twelve years, the aim of which was to promote awareness of African-American issues and to encourage the broadening of studies into the black man's experience. Founded late in the fall semester of 1968 (The Greenville News, "Clemson Senate Accepts Black Identity League", Friday 6 December 1968), it was reorganized into Pamoja, a black cultural group, a Swahili word meaning "togetherness", in the summer of 1980.
