Occupy Movements In the 1930s and 1940s

“The Struggle for Free Speech at the City College of New York 1931-42”

Presented by Carol Smith, Retired Faculty, CCNY



Come join us for this compelling presentation, which will include police surveillance photographs, cartoons and graphics documenting the student and faculty activism at the City College of NY spawned by the Depression and the rise of fascism in Europe. This activism brought repeated crackdowns by the administration and culminated in the dismissal of 50 CCNY faculty and staff – the largest academic purge in US history.



Time will be allotted for Q&A, discussion and announcements.



Donations to Occupy Forum to cover costs are encouraged; no one turned away!
