Police treatment of African American Students
Students at San Francisco State College sit down in a field listening to protest songs from a female folk singer. Police are seen in riot gear, standing in the way of a group of protesters. Two black students describe police behavior on campus. A black woman describes in compelling detail how she was intimidated by an Officer Sheehan immediately upon her leaving a class. A white man speaks from a podium, asking for an end to the strike and trying to appeal to reason. Members of the Black Studies Department also address students.
