THE NORTH HALL TAKEOVER 50 YEARS AFTER A Black Vision of Change "We are today the outcome they created."Jeffrey Stewart  UCSB Alumni and the Department of Black Studies in coordination with the Admissions Office, Division of Social Sciences, Educational Opportunity Program, MultiCultural Center, Housing, Dining & Auxiliary Enterprises, UCSB Library, Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and the Office of the Chancellor of the University of California at Santa Barbara are proud to announce our fall celebration North Hall Takeover 50 Years After honoring the 12 students who, on October 14, 1968, took over the North Hall building to demand change in the curriculum and climate on campus for Black students. In response, then Chancellor Vernon Cheadle began a process of institutional change that resulted in the founding of the Department of Black Studies, the Chican@ Studies Department, the Center for Black Studies Research, and eventually the Departments of Asian American Studies and Feminist Studies with other research and curricular apertures to study inequality and a multicultural world. The energetic vision of these original 12 students also embodied the hope that all Black students in the state of California would have an excellent chance to attend its flagship university system in a world free of racism, fascism, and misogyny that nurtured equitable, spiritually meaningful lives. This conference is an opportunity not only to reflect on the importance of the North Hall Takeover, but also to think seriously abo
