Striking Images – San Francisco State 1968
Featuring the photographs of Phiz Mezey
October 28 to December 20, 2013
Exhibit opening December 2, 2013 | 6:00 to 8:00pm
Student unrest at San Francisco State reached a boiling point in 1968 over such national issues as racial justice and the Vietnam War, resulting in a bitter student and faculty strike – the longest campus strike in United States history. Phiz Mezey’s striking photographs capture the tumult of events while focusing on the participants of this historic moment of change.
