As part of the 2012 LaborFest, three local Berkeley
historians discuss lesser known aspects of the compelling struggles for a more
democratic power structure in Berkeley and the East Bay
as well as their populist & socialist traditions. Carole Kennerly was the
first Black woman elected to the Berkeley City Council, and is the retired
Director of the Coop Federal Credit Union. Richard Schwartz is a Berkeley author who has
written on Berkeley’s “eccentrics and cutthroats” as well as its environmental
history. Richard Brenemann was a journalist for the Sacramento Bee, and covered
the Daily Planet. Don’t miss these lively and insightful stories that built our
past and can contribute to the activism of the 99% for the future generations.
Donations welcomed. No one turned away.
