    Milk Moscone Memorial 2008 - Harry Britt Speech



    On November 28, 2008, the city of San Francisco remembered the

    lives of Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk. It was the

    day after the 30th anniversary of the assassination of both Moscone and

    Milk by then former Supervisor Dan White, which occurred on November

    27, 1978. George Moscone is remembered as a mayor who supported the

    disenfranchised people of San Francisco and left a legacy of future

    politicians that have shaped both the city and the state of California.

    Harvey Milk was the first ever openly-gay person to be elected to a

    government position and is greatly remembered as a pioneer of gay

    rights in the 1970's.



    This the full speech by Harry Britt, appointed to the Board of Supervisors in San Francisco in the wake of Harvey Milk's assassination, at the Memorial Concert in front of City Hall in San Francisco, CA
