Bay View Archives

Welcome to the Bay View Archives! With a $20,000 grant from The San Francisco Foundation, we can finally formalize and publicize our trove of Black journalism from 1976 to 2008.

July 2019 marks 11 years from the date of the final weekly print edition of the Bay View News July 2, 2008. For our first archival series, we will be pulling articles focused on historical examples of Bay Area communities’ activism toward self-preservation and against the inaction of a rapidly gentrifying city. July 2008 was a perfect example of such movements. From the Quesada Kids Community Fruit Stand to the protests against the illegal eviction from Oakland’s California Hotel, Black activist communities in the Bay worked to create alternative modes of living and acting, forming environments centered around mutual empowerment and advocacy.

Big victory for California Hotel tenants
