Shut It Down! A College in Crisis, San Francisco State College, October, 1968 to April, 1969. A Staff Report to the National Commission on the Causes and Prevention of Violence.
Orrick, William H., Jr.
This document reviews the activities at San Francisco State College, October 1968-April, 1969: why the San Francisco State College strike became the first sustained assault on an institution by its students, embroiling, as it did, not only the faculty, administrators, trustees, students, and alumni, but also the political leaders of the city and the State, and the off-campus community. The first part of the report describes the California system of higher education and San Francisco State College, the conditions prior to the strike, and the strike. Because the student strike leadership was centered in the Black Student Union, the second part of the report deals with the black community and some of the reasons underlying the actions of the black student strike leaders. This is followed by a brief comment on the outlook for the future and appendices containing a list of the demands, a comment on the police, a list of the trustees of the California State colleges, and a summary of the proposed Black Studies Program.
