The Party’s Over: Former Communist Party Members in the Bay Area

March 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

http://freestock.ca/americas_g98-san_francisco_sunrise__hdr_p4613.html

Communist Party members were an important part of the Bay Area’s political left during the 1930s and early 1940s. The eventual decline and fall of the party profoundly affected these individuals and the region’s leftwing politics. Bob Cherny discusses these issues in his seminar appearance on Tuesday, March 19. Now Professor emeritus, Cherny taught American History at San Francisco State for more than forty years. Along with researching the life and times of labor leader Harry Bridges, he has published several important works, including Victor Arnautoff and the Politics of Art (2017).

The session will be from 7-9:15 p.m. at the UCB Institute for Research on Labor and Employment, 2521 Channing Way (just east of Telegraph Ave.)

Free admission and dinner.
