2. Black Power and the Big Green:  Dartmouth College, the Ivy League, and the Black Freedom Movement

Black students improved the Ivy League and American higher education in the second half of the twentieth century.  By first matriculating at and then pressing their elite institutions to respond to the demands of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements, black student-activists made learning centers like Dartmouth College venues for educational and social change.  Stefan M. Bradley, author of the award-winning Harlem vs. Columbia University:  Black Student Power in the Late 1960s and co-editor of the newly released Alpha Phi Alpha:  A Legacy of Greatness, The Demands of Transcendence, will discuss the evolution of the Black Freedom Movement at Dartmouth College and other Ivy League institutions.
