Berkeley: [1968]. 1.5 inch diameter pin, very good.

A course titled “Social Analysis 139X: Dehumanization and Regeneration of the American Social Order” was to be guest taught at UC Berkeley by Black Panther Minister of Information Eldridge Cleaver. Then-governor Ronald Reagan worked with state legislators to make the Board of Regents pass a new rule limiting guest lectures. The regents voted to deny credit to 139X if it was not restructured to meet their requirements. On October 23, 1968 there was a rally in support of the course at which students chanted the slogan on this pin; the resulting sit-in culminated in the arrest of 52 activists.
