NATIONAL BROADCAST– Documentary Film AGENTS OF CHANGE on America Reframed
February 20, 2018 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
National Broadcast of California Humanities-supported Documentary Film AGENTS OF CHANGE on America Reframed.
Synopsis: Told through the voices of past student activists and organizers, Agents of Change looks at a pivotal moment when our nation was caught at the intersection of the Civil Rights, Black Power, and Anti-Vietnam War Movements. The film examines the racial conditions on college campuses across the U.S., focusing on two seminal protests: San Francisco State in 1968 and Cornell University in 1969.
At San Francisco State, students and their supporters which included faculty and the increasingly influential Black Panther Party, launched the longest student strike in U.S. history. Struggling for themselves and the generations of students to come, Black, Latino and Asian student groups worked together to form the Third World Liberation Front. Their efforts birthed the first College of Ethnic Studies in the nation and ignited similar actions across the country.
