AGENTS OF CHANGE

By Frank Dawson and Abby Ginzberg..

In presence of Frank Dawson and Abby Ginzberg (directors)

From the well-publicized events at San Francisco State in 1968 to the image of black students with guns emerging from the student union’s takeover at Cornell University in April 1969, the struggle for a more relevant and meaningful education, including demands for black and ethnic studies programs, became a clarion call across the country in the late 1960s. Through the stories of these young men and women who were at the forefront of these efforts, Agents of Change examines the untold story of the racial conditions on college campuses and throughout the country, and how they led to these protests. Forty-five years later, many of the same demands are resurfacing in campus protests across the country, revealing how much work remains to be done.
