On the 40th anniversary of his death, the life and leadership of former San Francisco mayor George Moscone is the subject of a new documentary, Moscone: A Legacy of Change. The film follows Moscone’s life, from a child coming of age in 1940s San Francisco, to his pioneering leadership in the state Senate, to his days as a beloved “mayor of the people,” which ended abruptly when he was assassinated by city supervisor Dan White. Featuring anecdotes from former colleagues like Sen. Dianne Feinstein and the Honorable Willie Brown, as well as from his youngest child, Jonathan Moscone, the documentary is a revealing portrait of a transformational leader. Moscone: A Legacy of Change airs Friday, Nov. 23, at 8 p.m. on KQED.
