The 1966 Hunter’s Point riot has disappeared into the fog of San Francisco’s lost memories.

Erupting after police shot a young African-American man running away from a stolen car, it led to martial law and military patrols in both Hunter’s Point and the Fillmore.

Join them as they hear from Darrell Rogers who lived through the riot, trace San Francisco’s black community history up to the present with Rheema Calloway (The Last 3%), and examine the stark similarities between then and now with Adriana Camarena, active with several coalitions seeking radical reform of local policing practices after multiple police murders in the past few years.
