monumento

Today was the dedication of the new monument to the Spanish Civil War's Abraham Lincoln Brigade in San Francisco.

There's much of a story here and I will try to fill in some of the holes in-time...for the time being I did want to post the pictures from the phone.

Now, let's get progressive...

A quote from Paul Robeson:




Mayor Gavin Newsome

Artist Walter Hood

An image of Paul Robeson orating

The gathered crowd...


The artist Ann Chamberlain’s constant companion Victor Zaballa and their friend Jerome Garchik.


Chamberlain's been engaged in battle with disease for the past several years. Victor writes, "Please keep her in your prayers and good thoughts. She is capable of surprising everyone and recover from this. She has done it before; she is particularly gifted in performing well under pressure and against all odds. So I am confident that we have a Gatita Ann for a very long time."
