Labor at the Crossroads (CUNY 1998)

Co-produced by the CUNY Association for Worker Education and the Department of Communications at Hunter College, this video features footage of February 1995 CUNY/SUNY student protests in Albany as well as discussions featuring CUNY professors Sandi Cooper and Blanche Cooke, and Janine Jackson (Labor At the Crossroad host) and Nicole Hosten.

At the time of the program's airing, CUNY had been threatened with drastic state cuts in funding that threatened to undermine the university's contribution to the city and the state. And even more than budget cuts, the university also faced persistent attacks from city leaders, including Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, that sought to reshape the university by eliminating remedial education at the senior colleges.
