Campus Activity: "The Camden 28" Documentary & Screening


October 19, 2018    
6:00 pm-8:30 pm
“The Camden 28” is a 2007 documentary film about twenty- eight members of the “Catholic Left” who were arrested in 1971 for attempting to break into and vandalize a draft board in Camden, New Jersey. Because the Camden 28 were not militant and did not plant bombs like the Weathermen, they provided a much greater threat to the U.S. government: the growing religious opposition to the Vietnam war could not be written off as extremist, so they had to be brought down.
