After reading the Kerner Report (Report of the National Advisory Commission on Disorders) and listening to the Ethnic Studies podcast, please post a journal entry in response. Consider:
What observations of the Commission about the causes of, and solutions to, racial disorders in US cities correspond to issues raised by the students at San Francisco State College at about the same time?
In what ways did either the Kerner Report or the student strike at San Francisco State improve the lives of African Americans (and Native Americans, Chicanos, Asian Americans) in the United States?
In what ways can college students, then and now, be powerful and bring positive change?
Links to the document and the podcast are provided on the content page for week 11.
