Black college students have a long history of fighting for freedom, justice, and equality on- and off-campus. In particular, Black students have frequently resisted the imposition of educational models aimed at keeping them in their "place." In the late 1960s, Black college students were at the forefront of movements that sought to transform schooling and American society. The revolution they sought did not ultimately succeed, but assessing this era of struggle and change is essential for revolutionaries on campus today.
