Description
This program covers a panel discussion by students and faculty on the issue of student demands at Harvard University on April 17th, 1969. To show their opposition to the Vietnam War, Harvard student groups began to heavily protest the University's continuing contracts with the Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) during 1969. Student activists demanded that Harvard terminate ROTC contracts, withdraw ROTC academic credits, and create a new Afro-American Graduate Study Program. On April 10th, these protest activities reached a peak when student activists occupying University Hall were forcibly removed by police. This caused a mass protest at the University. In the aftermath, Roger Fisher moderates discussion among students, administrators, faculty about student strike at Harvard over ROTC, Afro-American studies, and expansion into Boston and Cambridge. Louis Lyons starts by reading the news from Harvard. Participants include Jim Kiernan, a WGBH consultant; Brey O'Connell, a member of the Committee for Radica
