In his 1903 book, "The Souls of Black Folk," W.E.B Du Bois discusses continually being asked in indirect ways "How does it feel to be a problem?" Three African-American seniors at The University at Alabama– A.J. James, Amanda Bennett and SGA President Elliot Spillers–came together to answer that question.

Written by James, Bennet and Spillers.
