Back in the day, a group of radical Stanford students would create an annual guide to the activist scene on campus. Called the “Re-Orientation Guide,” it was meant to educate folks about the movements of resistance against apathy and conservatism at Stanford. Students Promoting Ethnic and Cultural Kinship (SPEACK) would compile essays, poems, illustrations, historical information, and demographic data into one great guide.
The last version of this unconventional document was published in 2009, and you can (and should!) read it here.
Unfortunately, it has not been updated since then. But if you feel so inclined, maybe you can be the one to resurrect it.
