OK, seriously -- Carrol, Stuart, George, Herb, Jon, and others -- there really needs to be an SftP reunion along with this AAAS session we're contemplating. So many experiences to share! And I want to meet you all and hear more.
I only teach documentary film, but I have friends who make them and I imagine they'd also see the interesting features of such a gathering. SftP and related radical science movements are a vital part of history and science that is ... to say the least, not well known. I think it should be.
This can't be. I _was_ at that convention, and while the Chicago
Panthers that spoke did express unacceptable positions on women,
Stokeley Carmichael very definitely was _not_ there. I'm not sure he
ever spoke at any SDS gathering. Are you sure you don't have a SNCC
convention in mind.
