Agents of Change examines the racial conditions on college campuses across the U.S. in the late 1960’s, focusing on student demands at two seminal protests: San Francisco State in 1968 and Cornell University in 1969. Many of the same demands for curricular changes, increased minority student recruitment, and the hiring of minority faculty are surfacing in campus protests today, revealing the intersections America continue to face. Told through the voices of past student activists and organizers, the documentary includes rich archival footage, compelling interviews, and a dynamic soundtrack.
