Celebrate the legacy of African American heroes highlighted in the book Changemakers: Biographies of African Americans Who Made a Difference.
Researched, written and edited by the University of San Francisco’s Martín-Baró Scholars and Esther Madríz Diversity Scholars from 2015-2019, the book is based on the “Inspiration” murals of 95 inspiring African Americans on the five exterior walls of the Ella Hill Hutch Community Center in the Western Addition. The murals were painted by Josef Norris in 1999.
Hear from a panel of special guest Changemakers who exemplify Black excellence, plus organizers and former students from Engage San Francisco, part of the Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and Common Good at the University of San Francisco, who initiated and supported the project.

Presented in partnership with the Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and Common Good at the University of San Francisco and the San Francisco Human Rights Commission.
