Established in 1985 through a collaborative effort of historians, labor leaders and academics, the Labor Archives at San Francisco State University preserves and promotes the region’s rich working class history.
On May Day the Archives will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a program of music, theater, poetry, and San Francisco State Professor Robert Cherny speaking on local labor history. There will also be a history fair with organizations such as the California Historical Society, San Francisco Maritime Museum, and Freedom Archives; a film screening of rare labor footage by Rick Prelinger from the Internet Archive; a recording booth with FoundSF where people can share their work and labor stories; and a bar-b-q and activities for kids (fire truck, stencils, etc) . See attached flier for details and directions.
