During 1968-1969, San Francisco State College was a focus for national attention as the campus erupted in turmoil. Initially students threatened to strike to stop the College's cooperation with the draft but discontent broadened to embrace the concerns of minority students and the eventual strike is often referred to as the Third World strike. Publications, broadsides, flyers, scrapbooks, oral histories, photographs, posters, student newspapers, and other memorabilia of that event are available in Special Collections/Archives, as well as published materials concerning the strike. In addition, KQED and KPIX newsfilm concerning the strike is available in the San Francisco Bay Area Television Archives.
