The People’s Oral History project, led by Gary Karnes, Karen Araujo and Juan Martinez, interviewed 63 local activists about their struggles and activism around war, education, labor, and discrimination.  This self-published work chronicles Monterey County activism spanning eight decades – from Dust Bowl refugees in 1934 to Mobile Justice police watchers in 2015.
