Ghadar Party Heritage | Shaping San Francisco | City History Lectures

In 1913, students, farmers, and roaming revolutionaries working to free India from British colonial rule came together to form the Ghadar Party, to organize mutiny in India and work towards a secular world of economic and social justice.

The party, headquartered in San Francisco, collaborated with a variety of Bay Area based freethinkers, labor activists, anarchists, and expats of colonized nations. Though formally dissolved in 1948, the work of Ghadar offers potent lessons for political organizing in the present. Celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Ghadar Party with a night of history, visuals, theater, and poetry. Presenters include CIIS Ghadar researcher Simmy Makhijani, SF State Asian American studies professor Anantha Sudhakar, and community-based historians Barnali Ghosh and Anirvan Chatterjee from the Berkeley South Asian Radical History Walking Tour.
