1924 Cedar (at Bonita)
Berkeley, California

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 Berkeley for 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.
