Davis & Marcuse Speak at UC Berkeley

About This Item

KPIX Eyewitness News report from October 24th 1969 by Belva Davis in Berkeley, featuring scenes from speeches by Angela Davis and Herbert Marcuse to crowds at UC Berkeley. Davis is facing dismissal as an Assistant Professor because of her communist affiliations and explains that: "We have to talk about a complete and total change in the structures of this society because that's the only way that a concept like academic freedom is going to be made relevant. We have to go to the streets." Marcuse advocates the need to fight against the current U.S. prosperity and security because it is based: "On the oppression and enslavement of other peoples."
