Rachel Brahinsky, Professor of Politics and Urban Studies at the University of San Francisco, discusses a 1960s-70s activist group known in the Bayview-Hunters Point as "The Big Five" as an entry point to look at historical layers of advocacy and community change.

Bayview-Hunters Point has a long and important history of community activism and social struggle. Known best for the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, which drove its economy for many years – and which is now at the center of a controversial redevelopment and toxic remediation effort – the neighborhood has more than a century of industrial land use history that still shapes it today.
