Mildred Howard Day and Ed Roberts Campus opening

Mildred Howard, John Moore, and Howard's daughter Timiza Joseph at Berkeley City Hall

On Tuesday, March 29th, the city of Berkeley honored artist and activist Mildred Howard with a proclamation declaring March 29th to be Mildred Howard Day.

Donald Farnsworth was on hand at City Hall and took these pictures commemorating the occasion:

A large crowd of diverse ages came to honor Howard...

...standing room only!

Then on Saturday, April 9th, Berkeley celebrated the opening of Ed Roberts Campus by the Ashby BART station.

A very well-attended opening

The new building features a tile installation bearing imagery by various artists and fabricated at Magnolia Editions. Photos below courtesy of Donald Farnsworth:
