As a research collective of student activists – some newly acquitted with the movement and others directly involved in Unity 4 – and one faculty ally (Dr. Fernandez), we have documented the voices, lived experiences and struggles of Unity 4 student activists at SCU through the Sociopolitical Citizenship PAR (Participatory Action Research, SC-PAR) Project. The content featured in the exhibit, By Us, For Us: A Photo-Narrative Project of Unity 4 Student Activists at SCU, consists of photographs and accompanying interview excerpts that student activists themselves selected to tell the story of their student experiences and organizing at SCU. The exhibit centers the lived realities, radical wit and sociopolitical trajectories of student activists. We highlight moments that catalyzed the Unity 4 movement, as well as students’ hopes and dreams for a more just and inclusive University that honors their presence our SCU campus.
