Thank you for archiving this important piece of San Francisco to the history, the present, and the deferred futures of many San Franciscans. 

Thanks Alex for all the updates. Viewing Take This Hammer again after several months. I still hear and see and gain new insights into Jimmy Baldwin in this historical context of San Francisco, 1963.
