Black Panther/Student Movement

The Sixties in the United States was a time of extreme political involvement for many.  Many other countries saw similar activity, such as France with the Situationist Movement, but in the Unites States perhaps the most memorable and widespread were the civil rights and student activism that came about during this period.  Students and youth, opposed to the military intervention in Vietnam as well as the  mainstream liberalism and social conservatism that they saw, created a counter-cultural movement that sparked social revolution across the west.  Central among their many issues were rights for women and minorities.  These groups, such as Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), used such tools as the strike, rallies, marches, sit-ins, posters, film and an extremely active underground press to spread their message.

  1. Hey there. I stumbled upon your website while looking for pictures of street art revolutionary style. I don’t know if you’re interested or are already in some kind of movement to make a change radically and politically. If so, please count me in. No one else is going to change the status quo for us so we just do it ourselves.
