CUNY Graduate Center's Africana Studies Group, Adjunct Project, and IRADAC Present:
Black Student Radicalism at CUNY: Past, Present, and Future
Friday, November 11, 2011
CUNY Graduate Center, Room 5414
CUNY's Black radical traditions will take center stage at this exciting event on Friday, November 11, at the CUNY Graduate Center. In a time where social movements are being revitalized through critical education and direct democracy, these speakers will discuss the histories, present efforts, and future visions of CUNY. We will apply special attention to past public space occupations at CUNY that catalyzed major institutional and social change--such as the 1969 CCNY strike achieving Open Admissions--to suggest a bridge between the global "Occupy" movement and how we can transform our own university system. We welcome all CUNY communities to join us.
