What does the history of Latinos in San Francisco teach us about the value of community history and its role in building a pluralistic democracy? Native Californian and historian, Tomás F. Summers Sandoval, will share from his book, Latinos at the Golden Gate. He will discuss the rise of a diverse community of Latin American migrants in the city, with a focus on the historical moments when a hybrid Latino identity was forged through struggle--latinidad.

Jointly presented by the San Francisco History Center and the International Center.  A book sale and signing will follow the presentation.
