*Latinos at the Golden Gate

Community History, the City, and the Latino Future
Event detail
 

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.
