Campus Activism


UNC Charlotte students, faculty and staff participate in the Vietnam Moratorium on October 15, 1969. The day-long event was part of a larger nationwide Vietnam Moratorium movement which involved around 500 college and university campuses across the country. At UNC Charlotte, between 300-500 people turned out to hear a series of anti-war speeches (above). Rouges 'N Rascals (1970): 30.
