Occupation of Ford Hall

Joshua Kahn Russell

This poster is by Joshua Kahn Russell and about the Occupation of Ford Hall. The first CPH poster focusing on the student revolts of the 60’s and 70’s, this one zooms in on one of the first big building occupations, the Occupation of Ford Hall by the student Afro-American Organization at Brandeis University. The students inaugurated the building Malcolm X University and held it for 11 days, inspiring a slew of college occupations across the US.

Printed at the worker-owned Stumptown Printers, Portland, OR.

This is #36 in the Celebrate People’s History Poster Series.
