40th Anniversary panel discussion


On November 12, 2008, several faculty and a graduate student will hold a rountable discussion of the peaceful protest efforts that forced the University to establish a Black Studies unit on campus. The panelists will examine several competing narratives about the events surrounding the January 15, 1969 occupation of Morrill Hall. The panel will include professors Rose Brewer, Keith Mayes, Yuichiro Onishi, and John Wright of African American & African Studies, as well as Ph.D. candidate Alisha Volante of the History department.
