Reclaim Market Street! Occupations of Market Street tour

From SPUR:

Join us for a free walking tour amplifying the street as the stage for history, political dialogue and activism. In what ways has Market Street been used for political ends throughout its history? How do we claim this space as we consider the street’s future? This four-hour walk down Market Street will feature author, activist and historian Chris Carlsson, who recently edited Ten Years That Shook the City: San Francisco 1968–1978. He is also one of the initiators of Critical Mass and has spearheaded a San Francisco participatory history project titled Shaping San Francisco. Special thanks to Chris Carlsson and Lisa Ruth Elliott of Shaping San Francisco in developing this event. This event is part of the Reclaim Market Street! exhibition.

Free. Register here.
