When: Saturdays. Continues through Oct. 24 2021
The exhibit will reflect on Bari’s role in the 1990 Earth First! Redwood Summer movement, an organized effort to protect old growth redwood forests from logging. Judi Bari and her longtime organizing partner Cherney were driving in a car when it exploded in Oakland on May 24, 1990 on the cusp of their organizing work for the campaign known as Redwood Summer. The Museum will feature the never-before-seen bombed car and key evidence used in the trial. After the bombing, the community responded with an outpouring of support for Judi’s legal defense. A quilt created as a fundraiser and a puppet used at a victory party to celebrate the outcome of their lawsuit against the FBI, in 2002, will be on display. In conjunction with this exhibit, the Mendocino County Museum will host a series of programs and guest speakers organized by special guests Darryl Cherney and Alicia Littletree Bales.
