Journalist, author and San Francisco native Carol Blackman presents her new nonfiction book on recent San Francisco history, Truth and Love: Finding the Soul of the Sixties (More to Say From SF, 2017). The book demonstrates that residents of the city were doing more in the 1960s than just becoming hippies and dancing in Golden Gate Park. Blackman portrays the unique characters and social innovators who tell their stories about that tumultuous time in the City. At the GLBT History Museum, she’ll read from the book and discuss how she our drew on the archives of the GLBT Historical Society to document pioneering activist José Sarria and the movement for LGBTQ rights in the San Francisco of the late 1960s.
