Involvement with ethnic studies

Transcripts available in the following languages:

The students were pressing for any kind of classes that had to do with ethnic experience. And so the Dean of Social Sciences got me to be the faculty member for one of the initial classes that had to do with the ethnic experience. And all this time, you know, I’m not knowing what’s happening very much, because I had just come back from Africa. And then so when the Dean told me that he was going to sponsor a course in the Behavioral Social Science School on Ethnic Experience. So I says, “OK, I’ll take over the class.”
