As part of our planning for the 50th Anniversary of the 1968 Bursar’s Office Takeover, NUBAA conceived and planned a feature-length documentary to full tell the story.
The Takeover – The Revolution of the Black Experience at Northwestern University accomplishes the following:
- It tells the story of the conditions leading up to the campus unrest of 1968
- It tells the story of the events the takeover; and
- It reviews the results and legacy of the takeover.
We are working with the Northwestern Alumni Association to get copies of the documentary to you. Expect an announcement regarding this very soon. If you’d like to be contacted for a copy of the documentary once it becomes available, please use the contact form below.
Also, NUBAA invites its MultiCity Groups to request events that include screenings of The Takeover. You may also use the contact form for that purpose.
Special thanks to Digital Cafe for bringing the documentary to life, the Northwestern University Provost’s office for their financial support of the project and to the members of the 1968 Bursar’s Office Takeover for their courage and sacrifice.
