An audio recording of a 1971 eugenics speech interrupted by protestors at Sacramento State College.
In this recording, Dr. William Shockley gives a talk about eugenics but is interrupted by a student representing the Pan African Student Union and black students at Sacramento State College. Dr. William Shockley received the Nobel Prize in 1956 for his invention of the transistor. In his later years, Dr. Shockley became an ardent supporter of eugenics. Some of his conclusions were that African Americans were intellectually and socially inferior because of hereditary and racial genetic origins. He even proposed that individuals with IQs lower than 100 be paid to undergo voluntary sterilization.
