Watch: What It's Like to Be a Black Student on a Mostly White Austin Campus

Filipa Rodrigues for KUT News
As a student at UT, Nneka Waturoucha has found that her time in Austin has made her more accepting.

To celebrate Juneteenth, KUT News is bringing you voices from Austin's black community. 

Nneka Waturoucha is a 19-year-old University of Texas student. Her father is American and her mother is Nigerian. While she grew up around minority communities in Houston, she’s still assimilating into the predominately white West Campus area.

"I want to go into law and, eventually, I see myself working around mostly white people, and I have no problem doing that because living in West Campus, living in Austin has just made me become more considerate and more accepting of people."
