The Berkeley-East Bay Gray Panthers present Malcolm Margolin, author, publisher, and cultural bridge-builder, to speak on Becoming Fully Human: Lessons From The Ohlone Way in honor of Earth Day. Margolin is founder and former executive director of Heyday Press, an independent nonprofit publisher and cultural institution based in Berkeley, CA. His 1974 book, The Ohlone Way: Indian Life in the San Francisco-Monterey Bay Area was named by the SF Chronicle as one of the hundred most important
books of the twentieth century by a western writer.
He will share his experiences from his four-decades of involvement
with the Native communities of California. They reshaped his view of the world
and the East Bay. “The battle for a healthy, diverse, and abundant world is
first won or lost in the human imagination.” Under his guidance, Heyday launched
News from Native California in 1987, a quarterly magazine devoted to the history
and ongoing cultural concerns of California Indians, and Bay Nature, in 2001 on
the natural history of the San Francisco Bay Area.
After retiring from Heyday, he founded the California Institute for Community,
Art, and Nature (http://californiaican.org/) in 2017 to expand upon the work that
he began more than forty years ago. Friends of the California Institute for Community,
Art, and Nature, and the Alliance for Landless Peoples will join us on April 25th.
