Gregory Y Mark

Gregory Yee Mark is a Professor of Ethnic Studies at California State University, Sacramento.  In January 1969, as an undergraduate student at University of California, Berkeley, he was a part of the Third World Liberation Front that went on strike (the “Third World Strike”) at the Berkeley campus to create the discipline of Ethnic Studies.  During this transformative student strike, he was tear gassed, shot at by the police, and most important, he learned the true meaning of creating a relevant education for all people. He is pioneer in the field of Asian American Studies.

Starting as a student, Dr. Mark was a community organizer and activist in Berkeley and Oakland.  In 1969, in Oakland, he founded the East Bay Chinese Youth Council which addressed the vary challenges of Chinatown youth such as gangs. He continued this role as a community advocate and educator while a professor in San Jose, Honolulu, and Sacramento. He has fought for social justice, better educational for the underserved, preventing youth violence in the Asian American community, and a broader and more correct interpretation of American history.

Dr. Mark is a pioneer in service-learning, and in 2001, he founded the 65th Street Corridor Community Collaborative Project which has served over 24,000 Sacramento residents.  In 2016, this Project celebrates its 15th Anniversary of service to the community.

This Anthology, Introduction to Ethnic Studies, examines American history, education, ethnic identity, and the continued struggle for social justice through the lens of people of color in the United States.  Last, the chapters in this publication, begin to bring to the forefront topics that have been largely ignored but are essential for students to learn so that they can service their own communities.
