From SNCC To Reparations: Lessons in Solidarity and Student Activism
Join the College of Ethnic Studies as we commemorate the 1968 SFSU Student Strike with sponsored and supporting events surrounding student activism, art, and politics. Our first event is on Tuesday October 3 in Knuth Hall (Creative Arts Building) at 2:00pm - 3:30pm featuring Omali Yeshitela. Omali Yeshitela’s experience as a SNCC member provides examples of student activism efforts to counter US imperialism as in the SFSU 1968 Student Strike. He shares the importance of solidarity in the plight for African Liberation. He will also discuss The Verdict Is In: Reparations Now! that covers the 1982 World Tribunal. Omali Yeshitela is the chairman of the African People Socialist Party, creator of the UHURU Movement, and the Burning Spear Newspaper. The event is co-sponsored by the George and Judy Marcus Endowed Chair in Social Justice Fiction Filmmaking.
