Peace & Riots

Days of riotous living invoke a reactive official response. The stills show what happened to Kesar football stadium former home of the S.F.  49er's during the Fall '66 Hunter's Point riots when the facility became an armed fortress housing soldiers from the national guard including Bill Rusher and their armored vehicles. The SFPD Paddy wagon stops to capture black students being chased by police down a 4 mile gauntlet from Polytechnic and Manual Arts High School across from Kesar stadium down the Haight back to the Fillmore ghetto. The color stills recall a year earlier before I discovered the empty Haight Straight when we picket the pro war Haight Street Christian Science Church, Randy with the sign, Bill takes in the lesson and shares it while I film the occasion.
