Few cities in California can top the authenticity and richness of the black culture that makes Oakland a top place to visit during Black History Month. With their deep roots evident in The Town’s food, music, art and creativity there are tons of ways to celebrate.
From Concord, California, you can take BART to avoid traffic and travel comfortably with the whole family. Here's how to get to the Bay Area’s best Black History Month celebrations from Concord, CA BART.
This is a family friendly, educational and entertaining experience. Current issues within the black community will be discussed through plays, poems and dances arranged to captivate black culture and tell black history in a creative and exciting environment, all while reminding all of African American origins.
Feel like a goddess by designing a "wearable art" headdress to wear to at the Black Joy Parade. A headdress adds instant glamour to any outfit. And a headdress looks good on women of all ages, sizes, heights and on all hairstyles. Your Instagram photos will get shared a lot when you wear a headdress.
In February the Black Joy Parade will fill the streets of Oakland. Join us for the largest free, family-friendly event of its kind in California. A parade and festival to celebrate the black experience past, present and future. We invite you to come to be present, be creative, be open and be free.
The parade begins on 14th and Alice in Oakland, Ca at 12:30pm on February 23rd.
