This month marks the 40th anniversary of the 1968 student strike at Columbia University, one of the many pivotal events of 1968 being remembered this year. Locus Focus host Barbara Bernstein, as a freshman at Barnard College, spent a week occupying Low Library, the office of Columbia University's president, along with 100 other students, kicking off a series of actions and mass arrests that shut down the university for the rest of the semester. Today she speaks with fellow striker and Low Library occupier Hilton Obenzinger, (obenzinger.com) whose memoir Busy Dying (chax press) comes out this month.
