Campaign to get Hunters Point Pool Enclosed (Updated over a year ago)
KPIX Eyewitness News report from October 17th 1974 by Andrew Hill in San Francisco featuring Bayview Hunters Point community protests to have the Martin Luther King Memorial swimming pool at Third Street and Carroll Avenue enclosed, following the deaths of two children. Includes an interview with a community leader, with Supervisor Dianne Feinstein and views of the pool. As Hill puts it to camera: "I don't know why but the power structure of this city never seems to respond to the people of Hunters Point and Bayview until there's a tragedy."
