*The "Dress Rehearsal for McCarthyism":**
T**he Struggle for Free Speech at CCNY, 1931-42
Thursday, April 16, 6:30-8 PM
Martin E. Segal Theater*

Join Carol Smith as she brings to life a unique chapter in the history
of CCNY with photographs, cartoons, and graphics documenting the rising
tide of student and faculty activism spawned by the Great Depression and
European fascism. This resulted in various suspensions and expulsions
and a state legislative investigation, which ultimately led to the
dismissal of fifty CCNY faculty and staff: the largest academic purge in
U.S. history.
