Recently, 170 images of posters, artwork and photographs that documented San Francisco’s Asian and Pacific community during the 1970s and ’80s have been contributed by the California Ethnic and Multicultural Archives at UC Santa Barbara.

The images are reflective of the era’s social movements, identity, and messages of empowerment. More importantly, they show how the Asian American identity was translated into unity and community-led civic engagement.

See the images at Calisphere.
