San Francisco State College Riots

About This Item

Views of picket line protesters marching around the center lawn at San Francisco State College chanting: "On strike, shut it down!" There are several close ups of the damage inflicted on campus buildings and groups of mounted police are shown riding around the neighborhood next to campus. Riot police are also seen jogging past the camera in a column. Various speakers are shown addressing crowds and a class is disrupted by a man shouting: "Black power!" The march is dispersed by police, as protesters try to move from campus into the surrounding neighborhood at 19th Street. Contains excellent footage of police activity and the cameramen/reporters following them.
