On Sunday, February 19th, the Pacoima Historical Society is collaborating with The

Museum of the San Fernando Valley to present a Black History Month celebration.

Both organizations are inviting valley residents to come experience the visual and oral

history of African Americans in the San Fernando Valley.

The event will feature music from local bands and artists, with DJ/MC Eric Stewart

hosting the festivities. There will be large photo exhibits, vendors, and food. It promises

to be a fun and enlightening time for all.

Newly elected Los Angeles Mayor, Karen Bass*, is one of the invited special guests.

Guest speakers also include USC Football legend Anthony Davis*, who was an All-

American at San Fernando High School and member of the 1965 North Valley Broncos,

the first all-Black baseball team to advance to the Little League World Series.

In addition, author and historian Crystal Jackson will deliver an in-depth presentation on

the untold African American history of the San Fernando Valley. She will also be signing

copies of her new book “The Marilyn Monroe Connection,” which reveals the Hollywood

actress’ secret connection to Pacoima’s Black community.
