sf history / james baldwin 

this morning one of @jalcine's posts led me to this james baldwin video touring san francisco and talking about conditions for Black folks in 1964 - youtube.com/watch?v=J9UG9nJ2E9. footage and conversation includes the fillmore during redevelopment, bayview projects during demolition, ilwu cooperative housing under construction, st marys cathedral before it was rebuilt. recommend for anyone living in sf

here's the original post sharing (& thread) twitter.com/MadebyUche/status/
