Commentary
NB: Third World Liberation Front strikes of 1968: The Third World Liberation Front rose in 1968 as a coalition of various ethnic student groups on college campuses in California in response to the Eurocentric education and lack of diversity at their respective universities, most notably at San Francisco State College and University of California, Berkeley. Carlton Benjamin Goodlett (July 23, 1914 – January 25, 1997) was an American physician, newspaper publisher,political power broker, and civil rights leader in San Francisco, California.From 1951 until his death, he was the owner of Reporter Publishing Company, which published the Sun-Reporter, the California Voice, and seven other regional African-American weeklies in Northern California. Goodlett maintained a busy medical practice in his newspaper office until his retirement from medicine in 1983.
