On April 23, 1968, students at New York City’s Columbia University held a demonstration to protest military research and the condemnation of part of the neighboring Morningside Heights section of Harlem to make way for a new student gymnasium.

After the university-ordered police response, a student strike shut down the campus for the rest of the semester.
