Beginning in 1963, massive civil disobedience actions swept through San Francisco. Demonstrations focused on discriminatory hiring practices that excluded African-Americans from employment equal to white workers and shook the city’s liberal image of itself.

Featuring photographs by Phiz Mezey, this collaborative exhibit presents selections from the Labor Archives and Research Center and the archives at the San Francisco History Center. Curated by Nancy Arms Simon.
