GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- In a recent episode of NPR’s podcast “Code Switch,” Jerry Wayne Varnado spoke about SF State’s ethnic studies strike in 1968 which lasted until March 20, 1969. The strike was, in part, set off when George Mason Murray, a graduate student who taught English literature, was fired by SF State’s administration. Murray was also affiliated with the Black Panther Party as the minister of education.
