In honor of Black Music Month, recognize the achievements of African American musical artists who were born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Exploring genres from jazz and R&B, to gospel, funk and hip-hop, There’s Something About the Water… enlightens, entertains and hopefully, makes you proud of these artists who made their marks on the world stage and, like you, call the Bay Area home.

 

Linda A. Jackson, a native San Franciscan, is a writer, historian, photographer and food artist. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Mount St. Mary’s University and received her Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from Antioch University Los Angeles. She is a member of the San Francisco Writers Workshop, and has recently completed a collection of short stories entitled, The Religion of Slaves. She is now working on her memoir.
