Leave a comment

Fifty years ago, the creation of People’s Park produced one of the most dramatic confrontations of the 1960s, pitting young advocates of social and cultural revolution against the forces of “law and order,” led by Governor Ronald Reagan.  Tom Dalzell discusses these remarkable events in his new book, “The Battle for People’s Park, Berkeley, 1969,” published by Heyday.  Author of the “Quirky Berkeley” books and articles, Dalzell is also a labor lawyer and elected business agent of IBEW Local 1245, representing blue collar workers at P.G.&E.

The session will be on Thursday, April 18 from 7 to 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.
