Malcolm X put it this way about all liberation revolutions: "Revolution is based on land. Land is the basis of all independence. Land is the basis of freedom, justice, and equality."

Come along on a walking tour nominally surveying San Francisco social justice movements, evolving into an exploration of Malcolm X's assertion. On this proximately Fourth of July weekend, slurp up a tall, cool, draught of "40 acres and a mule," the Liberty Bell's eponymous invocation of land, the "inside story" about the Bay Region's housing challenges, native American reparations, and the deep, shanked issue of Occupy Wall Street.

David Graeber, Libby Schaf, London Breed, Bernie Sanders, You ought to be on this tour . . . or are you a Tory?
