Africana & Puerto Rican Studies: A Student-Led Victory

Season 4 Episode 422 | 26m 46s

In this back to school special, we look at the grassroots movement led by student activists with the support of some faculty to establish Africana Studies Departments and Puerto Rican Studies Departments at The City of New York, or CUNY’s Brooklyn College — one of the first in the country. How does this struggle relate to today’s fight for multicultural education?
