Title

video of Susan Brownmiller, New York CORE

Description

A short video clip of Susan Brownmiller, instructor in the Gallatin Program at NYU. As a member of New York CORE, she led one of the first picket lines in the campaign against Woolworth's in 1960.
I use her here as an example of what CORE membership was like (i.e. young, left, white, college educated) before New York CORE moved to Harlem symbolizing CORE's attempt at becoming more relevant to the Black community. She also talks briefly about the first Harlem CORE chairman, Gladys Harrington (1961-1963). Recorded in her NYU office, shot using a Canon Vixia HV30, edited in IMovie.
