You Say You Want A Revolution
CCTV
April 9, 2019, six contributing memoirists to “You Say You Want a Revolution: SDS, PL and Adventures in Building a Worker-Student Alliance", spoke to, read to and engaged with a large, enthusiastic audience of former and current activists for social change at Porter Square Books in Cambridge, MA. Lessons learned from the anti-war, anti-racism, pro-working class, student movement of the ’60’s (negative and positive) were suggested for participating in movements for social change now and supporting younger generations who are taking the lead.
The event was filmed by Andrew Gerzon and edited by Moussou N' Diaye

Save Community Media
CCTV
Community media centers across the country are facing an existential threat. In addition to a continual decrease of cable subscriptions, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is considering rule changes that could severely diminish funding that community stations rely on to operate. If these changes go through, local stations like Cambridge Community Television (CCTV) will be at serious risk. Produced by the students of CCTV's Project Journalism class: Tanina Carrabotta, Adriana Monsalve, Afnan Nehela, and Richard Sheingold Class lead by Peter Levine.
