You're welcome to come along on a FREE history of SF social movements walking tour--20 years and running--exploring the role real estate, more specifically land tenure, plays in social movements striving for liberation.

"40 acres and a mule" served as the caption for the African-American liberation movement post Civil War. In essence it was/is the age-old calculus of "Land equals liberty."

Lots of local, historical anecdotes; a thesis; and a public policy proposal.

Kvetchers, moaners, groaners, bitchers specially welcome to attend and then reflect on the tour's constructive response to the challenges, gripes, and oppressions which operate as their animuses.
