Synopsis: Just a decade after “Leave It to Beaver,” the turbulent 1960s became a time of rioting and unrest. Protests against the Vietnam War in America reached a crescendo as the decade came to a close, and many life-long friendships were forged in the heat of solidarity. The anti-war years bred numerous activist groups across the nation’s college campuses. San Jose was a California town dominated by machine politics, bigotry and segregated off-campus housing. The university saw its share of black activists and white anti-war protesters. Wawona Brotherhood: The San Jose State Campus Revolt is a remembrance of that time, giving an account of the civil rights movement in the Bay Area, when SJSU’s student body crossed the color line to elect the first black student to lead any campus in State College history. This was a crowning achievement for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and for human rights, without which the story of Barack Obama’s victory would be incomplete. Author Tim Fitzgerald, a mountaineer from Yosemite Valley, was one of the students drawn into the radical cause on campus. Together with Cognitive Psychology Movement leader Bob Prentky, liberal cause activist Richard Miner, and Olympic Boycott organizer James Edwards, a new society united by a cause of racial equality and hope for the future soon became a rallying point for young people. "Tim Fitzgerald’s work reminds all of us that the basic issues which divided our nation then – a questionable war in a foreign land and the fight for equality at home – continue to haunt our society." – Jim Beall Jr., California State Assembly, District 24 Timothy Fitzgerald is an accomplished writer who has also taught social science in community colleges. He graduated from San Jose State University with two bachelor’s degrees, in U.S. history and economics. He is now completing a third master’s degree in related subjects and is working on his sequel titled, A Diamond in the Rough.

From the Author: This work, as the first of a series in the set "THE QUEST: REVOLUTION, REVELATION, REDEMPTION" was begun almost 30 years ago. And was 10 years in recent crafting as part of a story of my life in Silicon Valley begining with my unusual family life in the mid fifties, and highlighing in this volume my college years as an undergraduate where I became a leading spokesperson for reform of college policy plaguing most colleges and universities coming out of World War II and the dominance of "En Loco Prentise" as a form of "ABSENT PARENT" - an attitude taken by college disciplinary practices that ham-strung youthful protest and political activism throughout the United States.

Taking a leaf from Tom Hayden's PORT HURON STATEMENT we worked to modify campus governing processes that led to the successful adoption of an ALL COLLEGE: Student - Faculty governing system still in use at San Jose State University where its implementation liberated student activism in Civil Rights and Anti-War Protest. Leading to key changes throughout the Bay Area in the area of racial prejudice and segretation and discrimination. An Important book documenting the critical history of the era. As do the other volumes.
