YOU are invited to tour the Sojourner Truth African Heritage Museum with the CSA community as we celebrate the nation’s Black History Month. This Sacramento treasure is a gem that holds artifacts and exhibits of African American History from all over the world that depict an amazing story of perseverance. During this docent-led tour you will view one of the world’s only mural walls dedicated to telling the story of African American history through art. Our specialized tour will include a view of monumental events, general experiences, and leaders who have impacted or continue to impact the Black community in mural form. 

During this special day you will also experience the bazaar of the renown “African Marketplace” in the City of Sacramento. The day will be complete with drummers, food, and exposure to many Black-owned small businesses and artists in our region.

WHY GOBlack History Month is an opportunity for all of us to learn details of our nation’s history which is far too often neglected and pushed to the wayside. As the saying goes, Black history is American history — and it’s a varied and rich history. A wise nation honors and learns from its past–It refuses to let the most important facts about our shared and collective memory disappear into the depths of forgotten history. What happened in the past shapes and informs where we are heading in the future, and it’s of paramount importance to set aside time in February and the other months of the year to learn as much as we can about Black history.

WHO WAS SOUJOURNER TRUTH? One of the most famous African American woman in 19th century America, and born a slave, she worked tirelessly for abolition, women’s rights, non-violence, and civil and economic advancement of oppressed people. For over 40 years she traveled the country as a forceful and passionate advocate, using her quick wit and fearless tongue to fight for human rights. The museum gives homage to Mrs. Sojourner Truth by expanding the historical & biographical knowledge of her life’s work and carrying on her mission by teaching, demonstrating, and promoting projects that accentuate the ideals and principles for which she stood.

IMPORTANT DETAILS: Plan to arrive no later than Noon. We will gather outside, then once assembled, shop the African Marketplace before our museum tour. Cost of the tour is $8/person (cash.) The Museum needs to know how many people to plan for so PLEASE SIGN UP IN THE LOBBY! All are welcome!
