Join Third Place Books on Wednesday, March 18 as we welcome Juanita Tomayo Lott with her memoir, Golden Children: Legacy of Ethnic Studies, SF State.
Golden Children is a memoir by Juanita Tamayo Lott, a participant in the 1968 San Francisco State College Third World Liberation Front (TWLF) Strike to establish the College of Ethnic Studies. The book discusses the reasons for strike and the background social, political and cultural changes taking place at the time. The strike's impact today is embodied in the College of Ethnic Studies and the efforts of every student, staff, faculty or community member associated with the college to ensure that the program continues and remains relevant today.
