Radicals in the Heartland

Energies around the DuBois Club issue, the Clabaugh Act, national civil rights activism, and growing antiwar agitation all flowed together to make 1967 a watershed year for protest on the campus. An anti-Clabaugh Act event at the Chicago campus sparked sympathy demonstrations on the Urbana campus quadrangle that grew day by day. Activists formed SACA, Students Against the Clabaugh Act, and Vern Fein arose as a movement leader. Rallies on the quad called for a public meeting with Henry to discuss the Clabaugh Act. Henry demurred.
