Action, April 1968

This issue of Action includes a detailed account of a City College professor's experience working within CCNY's "Pre-Baccalaureate Program," news of an upcoming collective bargaining vote, and editorials regarding various university-wide issues. It also contains articles, written just before the assasination of Dr. Martin Luther Kind, in support of the Poor People's Campaign.

Action was the monthly newspaper of the United Federation of College Teachers, one of the two main organizations that advocated for the concerns of CUNY employees before the formation in 1972 of the Professional Staff Congress, the union that has since represented CUNY faculty and professional staff.
During this period, Action was edited by Bill Friedheim, an outspoken professor at Borough of Manhattan Community College and one of the subjects of our oral history interview on radicalism at BMCC.
