Emperor Norton’s 200th Birthday Celebration
A handful of Emperor Norton’s newspaper proclamations and decrees are often referenced, most branding him as a lovable kook, but the reality is that Norton was an elegant, forward thinking writer who called for equal rights for African-Americans, the Chinese and Native Americans, among other issues of the day.
Come hear John Lumea, President of The Emperor’s Bridge Campaign, discuss the full range of the Emperor’s concerns, focusing on the “literary Emperor Norton.”
This free talk will be in the Latino/Hispanic Community Room A/B at the Main Library of the San Francisco Public Library.
