Location Details:

Take a brisk "View Master" type (look up these long ago travel gadgets on the internet) journey through a goodly number of San Francisco's social movements with historian and proselytizer (possibly the City's most out-of-the-closet georgist), David Giesen.

This google slide show was commissioned by Hosteling International to recharge travel urge amongst under 80 somethings, and is now available for public pride-in-our-progressive-chops slaking in the Bay Area.

The visuals and narration portray a land-tenure approach to understanding social movements, featuring Sam Brannan and the Mormons, Huey Newton/Bobby Seale and the Black Panthers, the Muwekma Ohlone native Americans, Sun Yat-sen and the modern China movement, The Diggers, and a whole lot more!

And you'll get the skinny on the San Francisco roots of the game of Monopoly!

FREE. Provocative if done right. And just one hour!
