The U.S. conducted 210 atmospheric nuclear tests between 1945 and 1962, with multiple cameras capturing each event at around 2,400 frames per second. But in the decades since, around 10,000 of these films sat idle, scattered across the country in high-security vaults. Not only were they gathering dust, the film material itself was slowly decomposing, bringing the data they contained to the brink of being lost forever. For the past five years, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) weapon...

Historic panels of the many uses of Market Street over the years make this mural not only an incredible resource for local history, but an historic piece in its own right.

And yet we only know it through the fog of propaganda and fear, and the actual events of 1917 are long forgotten in the mists of time. Find out what actually happened in that fabled year, and how it fit together with the world events of that epoch. Longtime Russian scholar  Anthony D’Agostino  (SF State) joins Anarchist scholar from socialist Yugoslavia  Andrej Grubacic  (CIIS) to unpack some of those tangled...

Longtime artist and curator Rene Ya ñez describes how in 1972 he and his colleague Ralph Maradiaga helped launch the San Francisco version of Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) by putting an altar in front of the Galeria de la Raza at the time. Since then, the event has expanded and in some ways has changed its character. Rene has moved on to curating for many years an annual show of Day of the Dead altars at SOMARTS, while the procession he helped initiate in the late 1980s has become an...

In November 1938, California elected its first-ever liberal Democratic governor Culbert Olson, supported by a state-wide Popular Front coalition of liberals, unionists, communists, and other radicals. But by 1940 the Popular Front forces were already fracturing and from its wreckage emerged key elements of the Cold War. How did Communists help build this social movement, and how did the Communist Party undercut its own principles during WWII? And where did that leave California politics at the...
