Thursday, November 21: Lecture by Alan Sugiyama
Time: 11:30-12:20 Location: C130 A&B
Sugiyama will talk about the Asian youth movement in the late 1960s and 1970s.
Along with former Black Panther Mike Tagawa, Sugiyama co-founded the Oriental Student Union at Seattle Central Community College (SCCC) and led a series of protests in 1971 demanding Asian American studies classes and the hiring of Asian administrators and faculty. The protest was in part modeled after a successful Black Student Union (BSU) protest at SCCC in 1969.
