The SLATE Oral History Project documents the UC Berkeley campus political organization SLATE, which existed from 1958 to 1966. These interviews provide the opportunity for significant figures in the SLATE movement to describe the development of their political consciousness, their role in SLATE, the influence of their work with SLATE in their subsequent political activities, and their overall evaluation of SLATE’s legacy.
