Black History Month Celebration

A Free Family Festival

Sunday, February 18, 2018
12 - 4 PM

Sacramento’s Black History Month Free Family Festival is back and better than ever, with live performances, hands-on activities, and Sacramento’s one-and-only Black and Beautiful Community Marketplace. This year’s festival will feature the one-woman exhibition Faith Ringgold: An American Artist, and the concurrent exhibition of works by African American artists, Hopes Springing High: Gifts of Art by African American Artists. The celebration will feature explosive beats by Grant High School’s renowned drumline, drama by Celebration Arts, and a special "Baby, that’s Jazz" presentation exploring African American musical roots and legacy. If that’s not enough, inspired by the history-making "Black Panther" film, the Festival will explore AfroFuturism in art and music! Get ready to sing-along, call and respond, and most of all celebrate all the amazing contributions of many African Americans.
