IN RESIDENCE: January 31 – February 20, 2023
Amidst growing civil unrest and distrust of the Nixon Administration, we follow four students at Buffalo State College, from different socio-economic backgrounds, as they try to find the right side of history.
Throughout the 1969 -70 Academic year, we see Barry, Naomi, Sharon and Andy dealing, in their daily lives, with issues like misinformation and public manipulation, women’s rights, racial equality and inherent racism, abortion access, political corruption and federal agencies monitoring activist groups, all amidst a publicly unsupported war and draft to supply it.
As these students are confronted with a barrage of oppression and manipulation to further a corrupt administration, they are forced to examine their perspectives and look past what they’re told, to define themselves and what they are willing to do for what they believe in.
