Women Leaders of Bayview

Free Talk and Performance, PART OF KRONOS LABS

Sat, Jun 1 2019 | 2:00 PM
Joe Henderson Lab

Festival Artist-in-Residence Valérie Sainte-Agathe leads a discussion with small business owner and civic leader Shelley Bradford-Bell and artist, activist, and educator Heidi Hardin about the unsung advocacy work of women from the Bayview–Hunters Point neighborhood. Teaching artist Christopher Street will join to talk about one of the many legacies of these women – arts and education programs at the Bayview Opera House. Street also leads singers from the San Francisco Girls Chorus’ Bayview Chorus Program in a short set, followed by a sing-along with banjo player Lee Knight to honor what would have been the 100th birthday of folk music legend and social activist Pete Seeger.

Kronos Labs are free and open to the public; first come, first served.
