Still Worth Fighting For with Joshua Myers

Wednesday, April 14

12:00 PM

Black students have struggled to reimagine the university. That struggle is one still worth fighting for. In the 1980s, when the rightward momentum shook the world to its core, Black student movements offered an alternative vision. Joshua M. Myers’s presentation will look to Howard students during that era as a model for what we still might do with the university. Myers’s book, We Are Worth Fighting For, is the first history of the 1989 Howard University protest.
