A look at two seminal protests in the late 1960s: San Francisco State in 1968 and Cornell University in 1969. At San Francisco State, students and their supporters launched the longest student strike in U.S. history. Struggling for themselves and the generations of students to come, Black, Latino and Asian student groups worked together to form the Third World Liberation Front. Their efforts birthed the first College of Ethnic Studies in the nation and ignited similar actions across the country.
