University in New York,

On this day in 1968, student militants occupied Hamilton Hall, the main
classroom building, and took a dean hostage for 24 hours. They stormed
into the office of the university’s president, ransacked files and smoked
his cigars. Over the next few days, hundreds of students would seize a
total of five campus
buildings.

The protests were part of a year of global tumult that included Vietnam’s
Tet Offensive, the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F.
Kennedy and mass demonstrations at the Democratic National Convention
in Chicago.
