Monday, September 23, 2019

WINSTON-SALEM JOURNAL (NORTH CAROLINA) -- In 1968 – 1969, Barr was a student at San Francisco State College (now University) where an actor named Danny Glover was a ringleader in the fight to establish a Black Studies program at the school.

“It became the first such department in the country,” Barr said. “Right before Harvard.”

Glover, now a famous actor and film director, agreed to narrate Union Time for free. At 73, he still participates in civil and workers rights activities.
