We Shall Not Be Moved: The CCNY Student Strike of 1949
Our first zine details the events of a 1949 protest at the City College of New York that has remained largely unstudied and unrecorded, but undoubtedly helped prepare for student activism in New York and across the country in the 50s and 60s.
Fugitive Materials is committed to the preservation of radical, lesser-known, and alternative histories, and to the disruption of informational privilege through publishing, bookselling, and archiving. We specialize in the material cultures of resistance: the detritus of radical social movements, histories of labor, counterculture, pedagogy, urbanism, uprisings, and art - with a specific concentration on opposition to the carceral state. We trace the trajectories of materials in flight.
