Pick of the week, May 31: Strike, 1970

Strike poster_lo res

During Reunion/Commencement Weekend, my colleague, Music Librarian and World Music Archives Director Alec McLane, and I co-presented a WESeminar on events surrounding the last few days in April and the first few days in May 1970 at Wesleyan, which included rallies in support of the Black Panthers in New Haven, calls for a strike to protest the war in Vietnam, and the Grateful Dead concert on Foss Hill. Pictured above is a strike poster that was printed on campus by students. I’ll be writing more about these events, so stay tuned.
