SAN FRANCISCO– Shaping San Francisco Public Talk: 100th Anniversary of the October 1917 Russian Revolution
October 25, 2017 @ 12:30 pm – 2:30 pmFree
SAN FRANCISCO–Few events in the past century equal the importance of the Russian Revolution. 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 histories and together we’ll connect it to San Francisco then and now.
