Golden Gate After Hours: Local African American History
February 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Join us for a unique Thursday evening ‘after-hours’ at the Golden Gate Library!
Enjoy a special presentation celebrating the seminal work of Ruth and Eugene Lasartemay, one of the founding families of the East Bay Negro Historical Society (EBNHS). Did you know that the collections of this groundbreaking group were housed here at the Golden Gate Branch? These materials now live at AAMLO, where presenter, historian Susan Anderson, served as interim curator.
Experience the Golden Gate Library Local Collection, a new place-based reference series, . Explore neighborhood stories in larger than life photo and text installations. Contribute your neighborhood memory to the collection.
Enjoy local music from the library’s collection provided by Leo Mercer, organizer of The MERCER Brotherhood.
Meet your neighbors, learn about the community, and enjoy organic snacks by Phat Beets, North Oakland’s food justice organization. This special celebration is part of the library’s programming in honor of African American History month.
