In 1971 Grove Street College also known as North Peralta Community College opened where the former campus of Merritt College was located. The college came about due to the pressure placed on the Peralta College Board of Trustee by students and the community at large in North Oakland, The fight to save Merritt College and the establishment of Grove Street College will be the focus of a exhibit and celebration in 2011.

I'm looking for Merritt College and Grove Street College school newspapers. I'm looking for copies of the BSU newspaper called the Lumpen. I'm looking for photos for the exhibit. If you have anything connected to the college please let me know.
