Student rebellions: SNCC, SDS, and May '68

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel will examine the historic conditions and political ideas which split the "Old Left" from the "New Left", set the path for SNCC's pioneering work against racism in the South, galvanized a generation through Students for a Democratic Society and the anti-Vietnam war movement, and inspired the student rebellion in France '68 which gave life to an explosive working class takeover.   We will explore these rebellions to learn what the lessons are for student struggle today.

Recommended Books Available in the Haymarket Room:
An Impatient Life: A Memoir by Daniel Bensaïd
Out Now! A Participant's Account of the American Movement against the Vietnam War by     Fred Halstead
SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) by Kirkpatrick Sale
