San Francisco State College Convocation

About This Item

Scenes from the convocation at San Francisco State College between students and administrators, including President Robert Smith. Also features students on campus picketing and shouting: "on strike, shut it down!" A black student gives a thought provoking speech outside in which he describes how the 15 Demands were presented to the Trustees and their negative reaction to them (strong language is used). There are a number of speeches from the Black Students Union and the Third World Liberation Front, including from Nesbit Crutchfield. There are also views of riot police and angry protesters. Contains much footage of speeches which illustrate the conflicting debates involved, of students listening intently and of media reporting on them.
