Panel to Reflect on Isla Vista Riots, Bank Burning

The April 24 event will include screenings of Don't Bank on Amerika and William Kunstler

“Reflecting on Rebellion: Isla Vista 40 Years Later,” a panel and discussion, will take a look back at one of the most tumultuous times in the history of Isla Vista and the UCSB campus, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. April 24 in UCSB’s Theatre & Dance Building, Room 1701.

As part of the All Gaucho Reunion, sociology professor emeritus Richard Flacks will moderate a panel of some key participants and observers from 1970.

They will include student leader James Gregory, now a history professor at the University of Washington; former El Gaucho editor and News & Review founder Becca Wilson, now a freelance writer; and photographer Gregory Desilet, whose book Burning Banks and Roasting Marshmallows reveals key historical archives inside a fictional narrative of the burning of the Bank of America.

The free event will begin with a screening of the film Don’t Bank on Amerika from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the same location. The panel will take place from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. with a reception following from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The film William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe will be screened at 6 p.m.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
