"Standing on the Shoulders of Giants"

Last week we wrote about a dozen young people from Minneapolis and Brooklyn Center, Minn., who are using Public Achievement in a program at Hope Community to understand power and make collective change.

As part of their work and learning, they partnered with SPNN to create a documentary about a group of African American students at the University of Minnesota (U of M) who, in 1969, staged a sit-in to demand that the university improve the campus climate - and access - for minorities. In this film, the teens place an event organized by students in Minnesota 40 years ago in the context of an ongoing nationwide movement for justice and equality.
