INDIE FLICKS SERIES KICKS OFF WITH A POWERFUL DOC ON CIVIL RIGHTS
Agents of Change links the past to the present and the present to the past -- making it not just a movie but a movement.
Agents of Change chronicles the story of the movement for black and ethnic studies which grew out of the impact of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements on college campuses.
Between 1965 and 1972, Black students at over a thousand colleges and universities organized to demand the increased admission of Black students, the creation of Black Studies departments, and the hiring of Black faculty in order to create a system of higher education that would be relevant to and reflect the Black experience and subsequently that of other unrepresented groups such as Latinos, Asians, and Native Americans.
#PRESSPLAY to watch film trailer
Agents of Change presents this dramatic, untold story through the experiences of those on the front lines at SF State and Cornell University, introducing today’s audiences to a piece of forgotten history, but one which resonates with college students of color today, many of whom feel like the film accurately depicts the situation they find themselves in.
