From Frank Dawson and Abby Ginzberg, Agents of Change is a feature length documentary that tells the story of "the intersection of race, culture, and the American university."

Here's the synopsis:

From the well-publicized events at SF State in 1968 to the image of black students with guns emerging from the takeover of the student union at Cornell University in April 1969, the struggle for a more relevant and meaningful education became a clarion call across the country in the late 1960’s. Through the stories of the young men and women who were at the forefront of these efforts, AGENTS of CHANGE examines the untold story of the racial conditions on college campuses and in the country that led to these protests, revealing how unprepared these institutions were when confronted by demands for black studies programs, safer housing; fairer judicial proceedings and changes to democratize the institutions. The film’s characters were at the crossroads of change and controversy at a pivotal time in America’s history  

The filmmakers are almost halfway to their fundraising goal of $20,000 to get to rough cut stage, with 19 days left in their Kickstarter campaign.
