A Photographic Retrospective of San Francisco’s African-American Community.
This presentation features selected works, many never before published, of local photographer, Steve Jackson, Jr., who was resident photographer at Jimbo’s Bop City (1951-1965). A portion of Jackson’s collection is currently on exhibit at the Smithsonian’s African-American Museum of History & Culture in Washington, DC. Join us and experience the City and San Francisco’s African-American community through images and anecdotes shared by his daughter, Linda.
