Through film, performance, and dialogue, this session will explore the historical significance of New York City’s community control movement in Harlem, East Harlem, Ocean-Hill Brownville, Bedford Stuyvesant, the Lower East Side, and the South Bronx in the 1960s. Scholars and community activists from the past and present will explore the long arc of intersectionality in New York City’s grassroots organizing for educational equity and justice and the city, union, and school system responses. Interwoven throughout will be stories from the classroom, school, district and neighborhoods touched by the community control movement and their relevance to organizing today.
