As this inquiry demon­strates, cam­pus activism has tak­en myr­i­ad forms – from peren­ni­al die-ins and walk­outs to a cam­paign for a Lev­el 1 Trau­ma Cen­ter. Still, what many share is a rejec­tion of the mythos of “Black progress.” What they embrace, in turn, is that the endur­ing con­di­tion of Blacks in the Unit­ed States is one of strug­gle, neces­si­tat­ing agi­ta­tion for the re-imag­i­na­tion of equi­ty in an equal­ly endur­ing white-suprema­cist order.
