Hayakawa & angry demonstrations, Part I (Updated over a year ago)
Part I of a KQED news report from San Francisco State College, featuring a glimpse of student protesters and riot police in vans on the quad, followed by African American speakers discussing President Hayakawa and Ronald Reagan. Members of the crowd tell reporters the police presence is oppressive. Hayakawa announces the creation of a Black Studies Program at a press conference. Leo McClatchy and J. Fenton McKenna announce the implementation of a program to increase admissions of minority students. Hayakawa says he regrets allowing students the use of sound equipment yesterday. Students are seen outside, listening to Hayakawa's words though loudspeakers. A large crowd shouts: "kill the pigs, right on!" at the junction of 19th Avenue and Holloway.
