We'll post our Fall Talks calendar here some time in the summer. We have a great line-up in the works, including a look back at some major 50th anniversaries—1966 was a big year! The Hunter's Point Riot, the Diggers and their "Death of Money" march, the Compton's Cafeteria riot that heralded the beginnings of Transgender politics, and much more... Stay tuned!

NEXT BIKE TOUR » Saturday June 26, 2016
From the pre-urban history of Indian Slavery to the earliest 8-hour day movement in the U.S., the ebb and flow of class war is traced. SF's radical working class organizations are shaped in part by racist complicity in genocide and slavery, but from the 1870s to the 1940s there are dozens of epic battles between owners and workers, culminating in the 1934 General Strike and its aftermath. This is an entirely different look, during a four hour bike tour, at San Francisco labor history. Tour ends at Spear and Market.RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org

Explore Shaping San Francisco:
Discussions and reflections on the history of Bay Area ecological activism, based on oral histories documenting the past 50 years.
Ecology Emerges is an oral history gathering project to explore the past 50 years of ecological activism in the Bay Area and the role that individual and institutional memories play in the development, policy proposals, and interrelationships that together make up the existing networks of ecological politics. We document the living ecological activist movement, in their own words, but also in a larger context of urban growth and globalization.
Shaping San Francisco, as part of our ongoing work, sits down with people who have stories to tell and conducts oral history interviews.Check them out here.
