Third World College Now!

Facilitator: Marcelo Garzo Montalvo (Mapuche, Chilenx) is a musician, dancer, educator and PhD Candidate in Comparative Ethnic Studies at UC Berkeley.

Description: In this session we will be in conversation with veterans of the 1969 Third World Liberation Front at UC Berkeley. We will cover a brief history and background of the TWLF and their demands for a Third World College, to open a space of inter-generational dialogue and solidarity. Representing over 50 years of radical BIPOC-led student activism, this ongoing movement continues to challenge the Eurocentric, capitalist, white supremacist, heteropatriarchal, abilist and settler colonial foundations of the university. Come to learn more about this historical student movement, and to collectively envision what a Third World College might look like today.

Intended audience: Anyone who wants to work to support ethnic studies and related projects


The people’s university.

Training school for a new generation of university labor organizers.
