MARVIN X AT THE BLACK CAUCUS OF CALIFORNIA COMMUNITY COLLEGES
Marvin X returns to Fresno this weekend to participate in the Black Caucus of California Community Colleges. It will be a rare public appearance by the man who shook up Fresno when he taught at Fresno State College, now university, in 1969. Governor Ronald Reagan had the State College Board of Trustees oust Marvin X because he refused to fight in Vietnam. The college president, Fred Ness was forced to resign due to student protests. But with the same credentials, AA degree from Merritt College, in 1972 Marvin X was hired to lecture in Black Studies at University of California, Berkeley. After earning his B.A. and M.A. in English, he taught at San Francisco State University, UC San Diego, Mills College, Laney, Merritt, University of Nevada, Reno, and Kings River College.
On behalf of the Black Caucus of the California Community Colleges, we’d like to invite you to our 12th Annual Leadership Conference. This year’s conference is significant because it marks the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement. Come join in the celebration.
Our caucus has included all conference materials with information on how to register for the conference. On behalf of the Black Caucus of the California Community Colleges, thank you for your Leadership representing students statewide.
