About This Item

KPIX-TV news footage from December 1968 at San Francisco State College, featuring scenes of public speakers and crowds marching around campus and gathering at the Administration Building. Danny Glover and members of the Black Students Union (BSU) lead the crowd with a loudspeaker in chanting: "On strike, shut it down!" and "Pigs off campus!" Students heckle riot police and demand that college President SI Hayakawa come out to meet with them: "We want the puppet!" Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
