Protest and Pedagogy – Funky Revolutions

In 1969 a group of students occupied the 9th floor computer center of Sir George Williams University (currently known as Concordia University) to object to racial bias in academic grading.

50 Years later we revisit this page in Montreal history through an event called Protest & Pedagogy. Khalid M’Seffar of Funky Revolutions interviews Kaie Kellough, one of the event organizers (Soul Perspectives alumni) to discuss the events that shaped this incident.
