Cry of Color, a Spartan Daily supplement, stemmed from student response to and protest of the publication of a racially insensitive advertisement in the February 25, 1970 issue of the Spartan Daily. The Associated Student Council, the Mexican American Student Coalition, and the Spartan Daily agreed that minority students would author five supplement issues in the Spartan Daily, which would be published over the remainder of the spring semester, "to educate the students to the real issues and problems that confront minority students." A special allocation to the Daily of $2500 was approved by the Associated Student Council for this purpose. Ultimately, only one supplement was produced, which appeared with the April 9, 1970 issue. The issue was edited by Spartan Daily staff writer Vicki Hernandez.
