This year marks the 50th anniversary of the historic third world Liberation Front (twLF) which took place at SFSU and UC Berkeley in 1968-1969. This movement led to the founding of the College of Ethnic Studies at SFSU and the departments of Ethnic Studies and African American Studies on our campus. Since then, students have continued to struggle for the original demands for relevant education, solidarity and self-determination for students of color on campus; founding spaces such as the MultiCultural Community Center, the Center for Race and Gender, and the American Cultures requirement. Come learn about this history by connecting with alumni and veterans from 1969, 1999 and other important moments in this ongoing struggle.
