Broadcast on December 17, 1968, this news segment for Houston’s KPRC-TV investigates a student boycott at Texas Southern University. A school administrator, possibly University President Granville M. Sawyer, downplays the disturbance, arguing that TSU students were protesting to give the impression of a national “fever.” An unidentified student rejects the allegation of “demonstrating for the sake of demonstrations” and discusses the success of the boycott across academic departments.
