Campus Protests, Representation, and Educational Reform


Nov 8, 2018
03:30 PM until 05:30 PM


John Wright (African and African American Studies), Jean O’Brien (American Indian Studies), and Lena Jones (HECUA), Moderated by Provost Karen Hanson

The civil rights struggles of the 1960s led to calls for establishment of the Afro-American and American Indian studies programs at the University of Minnesota. In 1969, the activism of African American and American Indian students and supporters led to the founding of the Departments of Afro-American Studies (now African American & African Studies) and American Indian Studies (the first in the nation). The new intercollegiate Higher Education Consortium on Urban Affairs, or HECUA, soon followed. A panel of program founders and leaders will discuss the history of these efforts and the 50-year legacy of educating students about diversity and identity.

This event is part of the 1968/69-2018/19: Historic Upheavals, Enduring Aftershocks Series.
