10 Years that Shook San Francisco 1968-1978

program date: 
Wed, 12/07/2011

Ten Years That Shook the City: San Francisco 1968-78 is A collection of first-person and historical essays spans the people’s history of San Francisco in the tumultuous decade from 1968, the year of the San Francisco State College strike, to 1978 and the twin traumas of the Jonestown massacre and the assassinations of Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk. This volume provides a broad look at the diverse ways those ten years shaped the world we live in today. From community gardening to environmental justice, gay rights and other identity-based social movements, anti-gentrification efforts, neighborhood arts programs and more, many of the initiatives whose origins are described here have taken root and spread far beyond San Francisco.
