City Lights bookstore event coordinator Peter Maravelis moderates this panel, an event in the "City Lights at 60" series featuring participants from the ACLU, First Amendment Foundation, and Electronic Frontier Foundation.
This exhibition presents photographs and ephemera from the poet Jun Fujita (1888-1963). Fujita is an English-language tanka poet who published regularly in Poetry during the 1920s. The first Japanese-American photojournalist, he is responsible for the most famous photos of the Eastland disaster, the Chicago race riots of 1919, and the St. Valentine’s Day massacre, among others. This show will explore his lesser-known landscapes.
