The Crocker is proud to host Sacramento’s largest Black History Month event! The richness of the African American experience comes to life through live performances, art activities, film shorts, mini-talks, and the return of The Black & Beautiful Artisans Marketplace. Participants include Thrive Choir, The BlyueRose Dance Project, Julian Dixon and his Tuba Time Tunnel, storyteller Diane Ferlatte, author Dr. Halifu Osumare, playwright Ginger Rutland, and a special presentation of Deborah Pittman’s Small Shoulders/Big Dreams II. In addition, there will be a unique opportunity to experience Sacramento Regional Transit’s “Rosa Parks bus,” and a Nappy Hair Live Exhibition curated by Sacred Crowns Hair Salon. This event is free for everyone. At 3 p.m., immediately following the festival, join us for a special film screening presented by the CineSoul-- Sacramento Black Film Festival.
