This video overviews the 1989 Galpin Takeover. Antwan Chambers is asked first by the interviewer to describe a timeline of the series of events in his own perspective. The planning for the event started taking place in the spring semester of 1989. The next question asked was concerning the atmosphere of campus leading up to the Takeover. Chambers then answers to how the college did with responding to the Galpin Takeover. The changes that were made that have lasted until the day of this interview are discussed next like the student organizations. The takeaway message/synthesis that Chambers received from this event is explained--you have to go beyond traditional means to make a difference. What you are experiencing now is not the end nor the beginning are Chambers closing remarks.
