A history of social activism in the bay area can be found in a Berkeley man's collection of thousands of political posters, newly documented in the book, All of Us or None by Oakland archivist Lionel Cushing. Today's North Bay Report takes a peek inside.
In the heyday of bay area poster art, says historian Lionel Cushing, there was an upwelling of interest and activism that often linked artists, activists, musicians and the community at large.
Lionel Cushing will present a slide show and talk about social justice posters on Thursday evening, February 7 at the Marin History Museum in San Rafael. He says he'll bring a specific local focus to the program.
