In 2001, UC Berkeley alumnus and student leader in the American Cultures movement David Yamane published 'Student Movements for Multiculturalism: Challenging the Curricular Color Line in Higher Education' (Johns Hopkins, 2001).  This book recounts the establishment of the American Cultures requirement on the UC Berkeley campus as an effort by students and others to address racism and racial inequality―to challenge the color line―in higher education.  To preview this publication, please visit the preview in Google Books.
