MIT teach-in on campus antiwar movement in 1960s

When: Thursday, November 21, 2019, 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Where: MIT • building 4-149 • Cambridge

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.

We will have light refreshments!
