America's Unfinished Race Conversation

Michael Eric Dyson is an op-ed columnist for the New York Times and a professor of sociology at Georgetown University. He has authored numerous books on black culture and both the history and future of race relations in the United States.

In his new book, What Truth Sounds Like, Michael confronts a difficult question directly: whether we embrace political resolution or moral redemption to fix our fractured landscape in this country. He believes the future of race and of democracy itself hangs in the balance.

He appeared at San Francisco's Commonwealth Club with former Golden State Warriors sideline analyst Ros Gold-Onwude to have a conversation about race and race relations in today's America. Tune in, and share the link.

London Breed's Mayoral Election Party

On June 5, 2018, the party started at San Francisco Delancey's Street for President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors London Breed in her run for Mayor. During the celebration her 600+ energetic and hopeful supporters understood from election vote monitors stationed around the facility that she was leading second-place candidate Mark Leno by one percentage point.

The following day, Wednesday morning, saw that lead evaporate because of an election strategy that allowed voters to cast a vote for their top candidate and for their second and third choices. The election strategy, titled "rank choice voting," allowed mayoral candidates to team up and share votes.

At this time London Breed, her supporters, and the citizens of San Francisco are still awaiting the election outcome. The winner's circle looms. We'll see who lands in it. Until that time, tune into the energy of the celebration!

The event, which was a huge success, brought together speakers who introduced presentations about apprentice training opportunities, workforce development, HUD's Section 3 rules, Federal Davis-Bacon enforcement procedures on HOME- and CDBG-funded projects, and contracting opportunities for small businesses.

Most of the dialog during the forum centered on rebuilding of San Francisco's Bayview Hunters Point for its African-American community. The attendees also enjoyed a free continental breakfast, complimentary brown bag lunches, and a Q&A, town-hall style.
