Description
The purpose of the project is to document the experiences, background, and life trajectories of participants in “the Movement,” the term used by group leaders to describe a diverse collection of activists that coalesced at and around Stanford University from about 1963 to 1973, especially although not exclusively in opposition to the Vietnam War. Project organizers aim to further document the Movement’s political objectives and activities and its social and cultural milieu; to illuminate the interconnections between various activist groups and issues; and to share lessons learned with new generations of activists. They also hope to record the impact of the events of that time on participants’ personal identities, careers, and ongoing political involvement as well as their impact on Stanford and the surrounding community.
