The Oakland History Center resumed its popular lecture series, this year online.

The Oakland History Center of the Oakland Public Library is proud to present their Fall Oakland History Series. Join OHC librarian Dorothy Lazard for a lecture series with some of Oakland's finest historians, as well as an exhibit at the Main Library.

The lecture series will be held online this year and includes the following events:

The Oakland-Berkeley Firestorm: a 30-year retrospective

The concurrent exhibit at the Oakland History Center commemorates the 30th anniversary of the Oakland-Berkeley Hills Fire. "[T]he Oakland History Center has mounted an exhibit to trace the dramatic events that marked that fateful day. At the time, the Oakland Firestorm, as it would become known, was the biggest urban fire in California history."
