Two wonderful books were just published that each shed welcome light on the impact of the SF Bay Area – The Explosion of Deferred Dreams : Musical Renaissance and Social Revolution in San Francisco, 1965-1975 by Mat Callahan (PM Press), and Lavender and Red : Liberation and Solidarity in the Gay and Lesbian Left by Emily Hobson (UC Press). I happened to work with both authors, and am honored to have provided the cover and inside poster art from my archive.
These books draw from painstaking scholarship, persistent interviews with activists, and provocative analysis to reveal new truths about how our social movements emerged. Highly recommended, both.
