Student leaders like graduate student Angela Davis proposed a Lumumba-Zapata College — named after the assassinated Congolese leader Patrice Lumumba and Mexican revolutionary Emiliano Zapata — devoted to the theory and practice of revolution, "communities of resistance," and socialist education. Students — with support from faculty such as Herbert Marcuse and Carlos Blanco — wanted a "Third World college" devoted to the needs and class interests of "students from oppressed social groups," that is, working-class Black students, Chicano students, and white students" (Ferguson II, 2015).
