March 22, 2016 at California Historical Society in San Francisco.
Join us for a stirring discussion between two historians around the creation of Berkeley’s People’s Park. We will start with a presentation on Berkeley in the 1960s and the environment that produced the park and then dive into a discussion around the park itself.
Panelists: Jon David Cash, author of the California History journal article “People’s Park: Birth and Survival,” and William Rorabaugh, Dio Richardson Endowed Professor History at University of Washington and author of “The Alcoholic Republic: An American Tradition, The Craft Apprentice: From Franklin to the Machine Age”, and “Berkeley at War: The 1960s”. His newest book is titled “American Hippies” and was published by Cambridge University Press in 2015.
