Youth Speaks celebrates the continuing life and legacy of Dr. King with a powerful and moving evening, where new voices emerge breathing life into the work and story of Dr. King. Beyond homage, these young poets and leaders are continuing the work left behind with renewed commitment, imagination and love. Join us as we listen and reinterpret excerpts of some of Dr. King’s powerful oratory and witness the moving responses from brilliant youth bringing the noise.
Featuring performances by: Alicia Garza, Jari Bradley, Brenda Quintanilla, Members of the SFJAZZ High School All-Stars with Tammy Hall and Ericson Amaya, Black Sheroes and more.

O Glorious City
A solo exhibition celebrating SF City Hall’s 100th birthday by Jeremy Fish
Exhibition Dates: November 4, 2015 – February 12, 2016
O Glorious City features both drawings and photographs about San Francisco, with many relating specifically to historic City Hall. As part of his process to create this exceptionally large body of work, Fish assumed the role of the first official Artist in Residence at City Hall. O Glorious City comes from a text written by former San Francisco Mayor Edward Robeson Taylor inscribed in the rotunda of City Hall: “San Francisco, O glorious city of our hearts that has been tried and not found wanting, go thou with like spirit to make the future thine.”
