During the 60s and early 70s, various highly important mass movements 
shook the country, primarily in connection to the struggle against the 
Vietnam war and to the struggle for black liberation. Student activism 
was very important to these movements, especially the anti-war movement. 
As a result, university campuses became a major site of struggle across 
the country, including here at MIT, where radical students fought to 
expose MIT’s role in U.S. imperialism while protesting against and 
attempting to disrupt the many egregious military projects underway at 
the Institute. Join us as we explore the anti-war and student movements 
of that era, including the activism at MIT’s campus, analyze some of the 
political debates that the movement contended with, and reflect on its 
relevance to student activism today.
