Black History Month Celebration


Celebrate black history with the Crocker Art Museum’s Black History Month free family festival. The national month-long celebration has traditionally revolved around a theme, with this year’s focus being “A Century of Black Life, History, and Culture.” In that vein, the Crocker has taken inspiration from poet, author, actress, dancer, singer and cultural icon Maya Angelou, who passed away in early 2014. On Feb. 15, the Crocker is opening its doors to families looking to enjoy, explore and honor black history with live music, dancing, hands-on learning activities, arts and crafts, and the Black and Beautiful Community Marketplace. This event is being presented in collaboration with the Sojourner Truth Multicultural Art Museum and Sacramento Juneteenth. For information, visit
