Student-led Teach In/Protest

Title

Student-led Teach In/Protest

Description

UCSD administration held a teach-in on February 24, 2010 to address recent racially-charged events on campus. Halfway through the teach-in, student leaders urged all students in attendance to walk out. The students then held their own teach-in outside of the Price Center.. . . Black Student Union Leader Fnann Keflezighi was invited to speak. . . . "We want to walk out of this university sponsored teach-in because a teach-in is not what is needed right now," Keflezighi told the crowded auditorium. "Right now real action is needed. So please join me in our teach-in and follow me to march out of this room" (Tintocalis, 2010).
