After Marshall’s death in 2010, the collection of photographs called “The Haight” was found in a notebook. That notebook was a mockup of a project Jim started in 1976, according to his assistant Amelia Davis.
“We were cleaning out his apartment and I came across a notebook that Jim had done,” Davis said.READ MORE: Curry Scores 32 Points as Warriors Top Trail Blazers
Marshall tried to get the book published in the 1970’s, but that didn’t pan out. So, Davis decided to take on the project.
“It shows everything that was going on, not just the music but the antiwar protests, the interracial marriages, the drug scene.”
Davis called on author and journalist Joel Selvin to put words to Jim’s art. Selvin was also a friend of Marshall’s.MORE NEWS: Federal Court Blocks COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate for California Prisons
“It was a moment in time that was over pretty much before anyone knew what was happening,” Davis said.
