The Stanford Connection
Stanford University students once invited the Party’s visionary leader Huey P. Newton to speak on campus, alongside Angela Davis, Harvey Milk and other social justice activists in 1978. It is now time for Stanford to honor the Party’s legacy for contemporary movements for racial and economic justice around the world. With an interdisciplinary and intersectional approach, this initiative encourages meaningful dialogue and intellectual exchange between Stanford students and faculty and local Bay Area community members.
