The Berkeley You Don’t Know!
Three local Berkeley historians will discuss some of the 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 (MSW/LCSW) was the first Black woman elected to the Berkeley City Council and a former Vice Mayor of Berkeley. She is also the retired Director of the Coop Federal Credit Union. Richard Schwartz is a Berkeley author and researcher resulting in fascinating books on Berkeley “eccentrics and cutthroats” as well as the environmental history. Richard Brenemann was a journalist for the Sacramento Bee for years and then 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.
