I AM SAN FRANCISCO

(Re)Collecting the Home of Native Black San Franciscans
Event detail
 

Created and curated by Kheven LaGrone, this exhibit captures the home and soul of native Black San Francisco. I AM SAN FRANCISCO collects the personal stories of several African Americans from San Francisco.  Those stories were assigned to various artists, from various places, to interpret using various media.

 “An African American born in San Francisco?  I’ve never met one before.  You must have been one of the few,” a native Black San Franciscan often hears today.  For many, the questions conjure up the feelings of marginalization and the loss of home.  They remind us that African Americans are being written out of San Francisco’s past and present. 

On Saturday, December 12, 2015, from 2 pm to 4pm, there will be an artist talk at the Library in the African American Center.

These cultural events are free and open to the public.
