reports on a demonstration by members of faculty at SF State College
and an announcement to students about an opportunity for them to have
input into the decision making
process. A member of faculty asks for volunteers to communicate the
news around campus, as there is no PA system. President Robert Smith
talks to reporters about the class discussion groups that will consider
proposals for a conference. An angry student questions
why the member of faculty speaking didn’t insist that classes were
cancelled during convocation. She explains she didn’t know this was the
case. The current situation with regards to the Black Students Union,
the police presence on campus and Mayor Alioto
is related to the crowd in a series of ‘live’ updates. This footage
presents an excellent illustration of how events on campus were
influenced by the difficulties everyone concerned had in communicating
with each other.
