The Best Family-Friendly Ways to Celebrate Black History Month in SF

The Best Family-Friendly Ways to Celebrate Black History Month in SF

The Diversity and Inclusion Committee hopes that every GGMG member will make at least one plan in February that relates to Black History Month. To that end, we have prepared this compilation of events for you. We invite GGMG members to add more in the comments of this post on the forums, and we will continue to update this post as we identify additional happenings around the Bay.

Local Black History Month Events

The African American Chambers of Commerce has a very comprehensive list of events in SF.

We also found a useful list of Black History Month events from Fun Cheap SF

You've likely been to the SFMOMA—why not visit its neighbor, the Museum of the African Diaspora (MOAD)?  Admission is FREE on Saturdays for the month of February.

The Oakland Museum of CA brought back its innovative 2012 exhibit Question Bridge: Black Males. It runs through the end of February.

The San Francisco Public Library is hosting events all month long. 

USF is hosting a lecture by Fr. Bryan Massingale titled "To Redeem the Soul of America: King's Vision and its Challenge to US Catholics." Thursday, February 1, 5pm to 8pm. 

If you can’t make it to an event, drop by any SFPL branch for the pamphlet Let It Shine: Children's Books About the African American Experience.  

Looking for other resources? Here are a few of our favorites:
