Mike Davis and Jon Wiener: Set the Night on Fire (ext online event)

Description: FREE Online event EVENT: Set the Night on Fire: LA in the Sixties

with Mike Davis and Jon Wiener

Mon, 8 June 2020
18:00 – 19:30 BST

Los Angeles in the sixties was a hotbed of political and social upheaval. The city a launchpad for Black Power—where Malcolm X and Angela Davis first came to prominence and the Watts uprising shook the nation. The city was home to the Chicano Blowouts and Chicano Moratorium, as well as being the birthplace of “Asian American” as a political identity. It was a locus of the antiwar movement, gay liberation movement, and women’s movement, and, of course, the capital of California counterculture.
