In 1969 a group of students occupied the 9th floor computer center of Sir George Williams University (currently known as Concordia University) to object to racial bias in academic grading.  50 Years later we revisit this page in Montreal history through an event called Protest & Pedagogy.  Khalid M’Seffar of Funky Revolutions interviews Kaie Kellough, spoken word artist,  (& Soul Perspective Allum) one of the event organizers to discuss the events that shaped this incident. This piece explores racial tensions, student activism, Montreal Black history through the music of the era, through documentation of the event, personal connection and historic legacy .
