Welcome to the Alumni Class of 1972

 

1972

We had a terrific reunion and as those of you who were there  know, one of the highlights was the screening of the film Agents of Change by Frank Dawson '72 and Abby Ginzberg'71 about campus unrest in the late 60s with a focus on the Straight Takeover.  The film brings back many memories and emotions as did the discussion afterwards and provided a platform for us all to get together during Reunion Weekend.  Those of you in the D.C. area have the opportunity to see the film this month either again or for the first time.  Don't miss this opportunity.

SYNOPSIS
During the 1960's, as the Civil Rights and Black Power movements made national headlines, a less well-known struggle was taking place on college campuses from SF State to Cornell University. Through the stories of the young men and women who were at the forefront of these efforts,Agents of Changeexamines the untold story of racial conditions on college campuses that led to these protests. Today over 45 years later, many of the same demands are surfacing in campus protests across the country, revealing how much work remains to be done.
