This article reflects on the 40th anniversary of the student strike at SF State. It talks about the political climate of the time and the lead-up to the strike, as well as explaining the gains/changes made as a result of the strike. One thing I really liked was that it provides multiple viewpoints on the strike itself, from participating students to policemen.
This is an article about ethnic studies today, and why they are (still) important. They promote new and different ways of thinking and looking at history, and benefit not just members of the ethnicity being taught but other students as well.
