The mission of the Jazz Heritage Center (JHC) is to ensure that current and future generations discover the Fillmore District’s unique role in shaping American jazz, particularly the role of African American musicians and the African American community of the Fillmore in creating that legacy. The Jazz Heritage Center exists to provide citizens and visitors the opportunity to experience, understand and appreciate San Francisco’s unique, yet under-represented, place in the history of the American Jazz scene, and to encourage residents of the Fillmore District to recollect and enjoy their cultural and musical history.
