Golden ChildrenA memoir written by Juanita Tamayo Lott, a participant in the 1968 San Francisco State College Third World Liberation Front (TWLF) Strike to establish the College of Ethnic Studies. The book discusses the reasons for the strike and the background social, political and cultural changes taking place at the time. The strike's impact today is embodied in the College of Ethnic Studies and the efforts of every student, staff, faculty or community member associated with the college to ensure that the program continues and remains relevant today.

"This memoir recounts the pivotal, historic moment when the School of Ethnic Studies was established at San Francisco State University. It is a story both hopeful and sobering, giving uplifting testimony to the power of committed social action and yet reminding us of the stubborn persistence of structural inequality in society."
— WALTER ALLEN, Distinguished Professor of Education, Sociology and African American Studies, UCLA
