In April 1968 Columbia's campus was the site of headline-capturing student protests over both the Vietnam War and Columbia’s plan to build a gym in Morningside Park. The students took-over and occupied Hamilton Hall, Low Library and other campus buildings. After several days, NYPD was called in to forcibly remove and arrest the protesters.
CAA of Boston will discuss this significant piece of Columbia history with Paul Cronin, the world’s foremost expert on these events and editor of the newly-published A Time to Stir: Columbia ‘68, a collection of essays and remembrances from scores of participants in those historically important protests of 50 years ago.
A cocktail hour reception will start at 6 pm with the Paul Cronin’s talk and presentation at 7 pm.
Discounted pricing available until April 30th.
