|Title:||Oral History - Jeff Machota|
|Abstract:||Jeff Machota (1966-Present) grew up in Cicero, Illinois with three goals: to get out of Cicero, to learn, and to stay out of the military. Machota accomplished all of these goals and became an active resident of Allen Hall and the living learning community Unit One, as well as campus at large. During Machota’s time at Allen Hall (Fall 1984- Spring 1986) he focused large amounts of his attention on the anti-apartheid movement by helping to organize mass rallies and even helped to create a shanty town on the Quad. A result of Machota’s time at UIUC was a lifelong commitment to activism, and today Machota is still in the Champaign-Urbana area and hosts a weekly jazz radio show.|
