1924 Cedar (at Bonita)
Berkeley, California

This book event is for Rulers and Rebels: a People's History of Early California, 1769-1901 by Laurence H. Shoup. A reception and book signing will be at 6 PM. A presentation entitled "California's Rebellious Roots: Lessons for Today" will be given by the author at 7 PM. Q&A/discussion will follow presentation.

Take a trip back in time to the state's earliest years and discover the untold history of the working class, minorities, immigrants, Native Americans and other groups struggling to assert their human rights against the power of an entrenched ruling class. Their numerous organized and unorganized rebellions from the Mission era to the 1901 general strike on the San Francisco waterfront altered history and taught valuable lessons that are still relevant today.
