Guess Who's Coming To Dinner (1967) is a comedy-drama about a rich couple's liberal views that are put to the test when their daughter brings home a black man as her fiancé. This is the last film Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn starred in together. This is a film set in San Francisco in the 1960's, and people can see how SF looked back then.

"The Fillmore (1999), an Emmy-winning PBS documentary, tells the dramatic story -- the rise and fall (and rise again?) of San Francisco's premier Black community, as it faced urban renewal. The film chronicles neighborhood history, including the 1906 earthquake, the World War II removal of Japanese citizens, & the tumultuous 1960's. A discussion with film maker Peter L. Stein to follow.
