SF State College Unrest

About This Item

KQED reporter Wanda Ramey speaking to camera at San Francisco State College. There are views shot around the campus as she explains in voice over how students are being affected by over crowding, racial tensions and the Vietnam draft. A brief excerpt of college President John Summerskill addressing a hostile crowd is followed by a series of angry speeches by three students. There are interviews with Phil Darlington (President of the Student body) and John Gerassi (International Relations lecturer). Gerassi states that the main achievement of this protest at San Francisco State was to provoke a national debate on the social issues troubling the United States. He was later fired by Dr Summerskill.
