Labor Bike Tour with Chris Carlsson
From the pre-urban history of Indian slavery to the earliest 8-hour day movement in the U.S., the ebb and flow of class war is traced. SF’s radical working class organizations were shaped in part by racist complicity in genocide and slavery. From the 1870s to the 1940s, there were dozens of epic battles between owners and workers, culminating in the 1934 General Strike and its aftermath. See an entirely different view, during four-hour bike tour, of San Francisco labor history. Tour ends at Spear and Market.
