Center for History and Community | 2488 Coolidge Ave, Oakland
Join Peralta Hacienda Historical Park and the National Parks Anza Trail for an evening of discussion with Dr. Fisher. This event is part of the Cultural Crossroads lecture series, aimed at exploring the modern day relevencies and reflections found in the settling of California. History, community, and politics collide in these edgy, open-ended discussions with California’s prominent professors of history.
Dr. Fisher is a professor of history at Mt. San Antonio College in Southern California. His research into the mixed ethnicity and cultures of California’s earliest “Spanish” settlers has been supported by the National Parks Service, and is changing perceptions across the country. Fisher uncovers the great extent to which people of mixed African descent shaped our history
Wine and Damany Fisher’s book will both be sold to benefit Friends of Peralta Hacienda Historical Park.
