Upending the Ivory Tower: Civil Rights, Black Power, and the Ivy League






There have been many political debates on the campuses of elite universities over the years. Often students have effectively led movements that mirror off-campus struggles. One great example of that is how black student movements historically used their positions within elite Ivy League schools to demand change.

A new book about the black-student led movements for civil rights and black power tells that story.





GUEST: Stefan M. Bradley is Associate Professor and Chair in the Department of African American Studies at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. He is author of Harlem vs. Columbia University: Black Student Power in the Late 1960s and co-editor of Alpha Phi Alpha: A Legacy of Greatness, The Demands of Transcendence. His new book is called Upending the Ivory Tower: Civil Rights, Black Power, and the Ivy League.
