Interesting back story. My memories of events in Oakland and the Bay area during the late sixties and early seventies are still vivid. I was of the right age so to speak and living in Sacramento when the Panthers were in the headlines. Two hours and a world away from a more gritty reality where some people were literally fighting for lives.
It was an interesting time which helps me maintain perspective on some recent events. Looking back, the branches of the roads not taken are more evident.
