    .......Its extremely interesting that Ameshia Cross would be told by a professor that her generation is missing from social movements, specifically, Occupy Wall Street(OWS). At any rate, hats off to this young sister for making them wrong, and the first to graduate from the Occupy Class at Roosevelt University, Chicago:

    The Occupy Movement Is Now Being Offered As A Political Science Course

    Political Science Professor Jeff Edwards and student Ameshia Cross appeared on CNN Newsroom Tuesday to discuss why the class, Political Science 390, Special Topics in Political Science: Occupy Everywhere, is being offered.


    Cross, a graduate student, said that she was attracted to the course because it helped her understand the movement in the context of past history, as well as allowing for her to compare it to similar protests in the Middle East.
