October 15th, Faculty Club
Led by Rachel Brahinsky
The second Bancroft Round Table of the Fall Semester will take place at noon on Thursday, October 15 in the Lewis-Latimer Room of the Faculty Club. Rachel Brahinsky, Ph.D. candidate in UC Berkeley’s Department of Geography, will give a talk entitled "The Making--and Unmaking–of southeast San Francisco."
A massive redevelopment program is underway in San Francisco’s Bayview, Hunters Point, and Visitacion Valley neighborhoods. Isolated in the city’s southeast corner, these communities have long been an outpost for industries, projects, and indeed people who were not welcome elsewhere in liberal San Francisco. What can we learn from the history of one of the last largely African American and working class parts of this wealthy, yet politically complex, town?
The campus community is welcome to join us at this presentation about this important San Francisco neighborhood which played so crucial a role in the industrial development of San Francisco. Bancroft Round Tables aim to highlight our manifold collections, many of which enable us to better envision California and understand it in its historical context.
