As the work to save City College of San Francisco continues, the school’s Labor and Community Studies Department is offering a Woody Guthrie tribute concert today (Thursday, December 6).
The performance, which marks the 100th anniversary of the folk singer’s birth, is planned for 6:30-9 p.m. at the Diego Rivera Theatre, City College of San Francisco, 50 Phelan Avenue near Judson.
After years of budget cuts and mismanagement the community college, which serves thousands of students including LGBTs and people who are low-income, is struggling to stay open.
The concert will also be a celebration of the passages of Proposition A, a local parcel tax designed to help the college, and state Proposition 30, which raises some taxes in order to fund education.
Performers include Jon Fromer, Francisco Herrera, The La Pena Community Chorus, and others, according to an email blast from the Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club.
Tickets are $10 for employed people, and $5 for those unemployed and students. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
