"From the Badlands to Alcatraz" Five Oglala Lakota from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in the Badlands of South Dakota took part in a weeklong San Francisco-based wellness program, PATHSTAR, that culminated in a swim from Alcatraz to the San Francisco shore. This award-winning film weaves the past and present of both Alcatraz and the Pine Ridge Reservation into a vivid depiction of the awe-inspiring journey the five youths navigate. It follows the group's first plunge into the San Francisco Bay through their personal and collective challenges, disappointments and triumphs as they strive to conquer both the Alcatraz swim and the dispiritedness connected to conditions on Pine Ridge. When: Wednesday, June 16, 6-7 p.m. Where: Mission Bay Branch of the San Francisco Public Library 960 Fourth Street (at Berry) Q&A to follow with Nancy Iverson, director When: Wednesday, June 30, 7- 8:30 p.m. Where: Excelsior Branch of the San Francisco Public Library 4400 Mission St. (at Cotter) Q&A to follow with Fred Crisp, PATHSTAR board member and Alcatraz swimmer.
