‘LA in the Sixties’: California Historical Society 

Watch HERE 
854 people registered for a Zoom book talk on “LA in the Sixties,” hosted by the California Historical Society. The talk opened with a brief review of Mike Davis’s work, and then focused on politics in 1967 (the anti-war protest in Century City, where the police attacked 10,000 middle class white people), the 1968 election, and the rise–and fall–of the Peace and Freedom Party (presidential candidate Eldridge Cleaver was not allowed on the ballot – because he was too young to be president), and the 1969 Tom Bradley campaign for mayor.  9-29-2023
