150W: Matriarchs of the Third World Liberation Front at UC Berkeley
About this CollectionIn commemoration of 150 years since women were first admitted to UC Berkeley, this oral history project interviews women who were a part of the Third World Liberation Front at UC Berkeley. The TWLF was a coalition of students of color who demanded justice and liberation in education. In solidarity with the Third World Liberation Front at San Francisco State College and with the support of community organizations, the TWLF went on one of the longest student strikes in history in 1968-1969. The strikes led to the creation of the College of Ethnic Studies at San Francisco State and the creation of the Department of Ethnic Studies and Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies at UC Berkeley. These interviews were conducted by Jacquelyn Serrano in 2021 with support from the Department of Ethnic Studies.
