Making The Impossible Possible: The Story of Puerto Rican Studies in Brooklyn College
Directed by Pam Sporn, Tami Gold
This is the story of the student-led struggle to win Puerto Rican Studies at Brooklyn College, CUNY, in the late 1960s. A mosaic of voices, film footage, and photographs taken by student activists, the film highlights how students and faculty seized the moment to build upon an alliance of Puerto Rican, African American, and other progressive students forged in their communities and the civil rights movement. Together they changed the face of higher education, transforming the curriculum and expanding who gets educated.
