KQED News report from May 22nd 1979, on the aftermath of the White Night Riots in San Francisco. Features a press conference with Mayor Dianne Feinstein, who acknowledges yesterday's rioting in the context of remembering what would have been the birthday of former Supervisor Harvey Milk. She asserts that: "What the dream of San Francisco is, has been to try and create an open, a tolerant and progressive city, in which people can live respectful of the rights of one another." She goes on to discuss the riots in more detail with members of the press. The original recording levels of this clip's magnetic soundtrack were uneven, resulting in variable audio quality throughout.
