Movie Info

From the well-publicized events at SF State in 1968 to the image of black students with guns emerging from the takeover of the student union at Cornell University in April 1969, the struggle for a more relevant and meaningful education became a clarion call across the country in the late 1960s. Through the stories of the young men and women who were at the forefront of these efforts, Agents of Change examines the untold story of the racial conditions on college campuses and in the country that led to these protests, revealing how unprepared these institutions were when confronted by demands for black studies programs, safer housing; fairer judicial proceedings and changes to democratize the institutions. The film's characters were at the crossroads of change and controversy at a pivotal time in America's history.


Critic Reviews for Agents of Change

All Critics (2)

This is such an important subject. It changed higher education in the United States, indelibly. It was deeply complex. It deserves more than a congratulatory gloss.

Dawson and Ginzberg's Agents Of Change ties two moments together, reminding us that if we've persevered before in the tumultuous era of the 1960s, we can certainly do it once more.
