Student activism has been central to efforts to desegregate New York City Public Schools. In 1964, 464,000 New York City public school students held the largest march of the entire Civil Rights movement to protest New York City school segregation. However, the event got minimal representation in the national news media, and a much smaller demonstration by white mothers opposing busing garnered more press coverage. Today as New York City students once again tackle New York City’s status as the most segregated school district in the nation, how does media representation and strategy impact their work? How do students transform the information landscape through unprecedented forms of social media and sharing?

Join a conversation with historian Matthew Delmont, author of Why Busing Failed and students from Integrate NYC and Teens Take Charge as they discuss the past, present and future of school integration work in New York City.

Join Alex Gibney, Dr. Otnow Lewis, and our host, Professor Zoe Chance from the Yale School of Management at 7:30 p.m. for an audience Q & A.

Why do people kill? Why do some of us kill, and others resist the temptation? The groundbreaking work of Dr. Dorothy Otnow Lewis, psychiatrist to Ted Bundy and other serial killers, has influenced policy, supreme court cases, and what it means to be “insane.” Academy Award winner Alex Gibney explores these ideas in his artful new film Crazy, Not Insane. Esquire magazine has called Gibney “the most important documentarian of our time.” Some of his other films include: Taxi to the Dark Side; Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room; The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley; and the pandemic response exposé Totally Under Control. Otnow Lewis is a Yale Medical School alum and former faculty member. Gibney is a Yale College alum and 2020 Yale Poynter Fellow.
