Subtitled “Black Students and the Transformation of the American University,” this 2016 documentary traces the rise in black activism at American universities from 1957, when Little Rock High School was integrated, through 1969, when African-American students notoriously took up arms to occupy the student union building at Cornell University. Though directors Frank Dawson and Abby Ginzberg collect some revealing testimony from former activists at Cornell and at San Francisco State University (including actor Danny Glover), the filmmakers never really deliver on their stated intention to connect the events of the 60s to today’s black student activism, except in the most cursory fashion. This works fine as a TV history lesson, but don’t expect any insight into the current agendas of college activists or how today’s well-protected campus protests relate either to 60s activism or to the riskier street-based agitation of Black Lives Matter.
