One of the most extraordinary civic buildings in America, San Francisco’s City Hall rose from the rubble of the 1906 earthquake to become both the symbol of a resilient citizenry and the epicenter of a city in constant change. The People’s Palace commemorates this remarkable piece of architecture and the dramatic events that have taken place under its dome: labor strife, political assassinations, civil rights struggles, and celebrations that have forged the character of contemporary San Francisco.
Featuring interviews with mayors, journalists, scholars, and everyday citizens who have witnessed history within its walls, including Dianne Feinstein, Willie Brown, Belva Davis, Robert Cherny and Gary Kamiya.
