Oakland | Oakland, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Join us as we combine our love for the rich history and culture of Oakland, CA through a lens of the Black experience! As the center for the “Black Renaissance of the West” in the 1960’s and 70’s, Oakland used to be considered an epicenter for the Black experience in the United States. From a bustling population of 47% Black residents to our current demographic of just over 23%, the changing tide of the city has seriously effected the Black population for a number of reasons.
We will explore more about the history and culture of Black Oakland in this hybrid walking-mobile tour, designed to highlight the contributions of past and present movements within and beyond the Black community.
What’s included when you book a spot on the tour:
3 hour walking/ mobile tour (we will start on a passenger bus and transition to walking during parts of the trip)
admission into the “Women of the Black Panther Party” museum
swag bag + refreshments
discounts on local food/ business offerings
Tour guide sharing cultural and historical gems
Fun conversation with other Bay Area locals
