Burl Toler was a friend of my family for many years and I also had the privilege of having him as a teacher during one summer school session at Sloat Middle School in 1964. I grew up on the west side of The City and am pleased that the Western Neighborhoods project is recognizing the contributions of San Francisco's people of color who worked very hard during those 'golden years' of the City's development to find equity for themselves and their families. For many of us, growing up in SF was a mixed bag but i think we all still view ourselves as San Franciscans pleased to share in the heritage that we all experienced. I look forward to more stories about the history and diversity of San Franciscos west side.
