Exhibit: African Americans in Berkeley's History and Legacy

Exhibit: African Americans in Berkeley's History and Legacy

May 16, 2021 - October 10, 2021 (onsite and online HERE)

Hours (during exhibits): Thursday–Saturday, 1–4 pm

The Berkeley Historical Society presents the second exhibit in a series curated by Dr. Stephanie Anne Johnson and Harvey Smith highlighting historical figures and establishments in Berkeley’s Black community during the years 1940-2000. Through detailed maps and photographs, this year’s exhibit focuses on businesses, politics, education, social organizations, and religious institutions, honoring and uplifting the community’s experiences, contributions, and legacies. The once thriving Black business corridor along Sacramento Street and other locations will be made visible again through a map and photographs in the gallery and a digital map in the virtual gallery online. The African Americans in Berkeley’s History and Legacy advisory board includes Black Berkeleyans who provide living history and personal connections; curatorial assistants from local colleges and Berkeley High School; and an East Bay-raised lead researcher whose graduate studies project focused on the historical Sacramento Street business district. Year 3 of African Americans in Berkeley is scheduled for 2022.
