Description

Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) and the California Historical Society (CHS) present: Psychedelic Soul: Black Cultural Awakening during the Summer of Love in San Francisco

A retrospective of the arts and activism that emanated from the Black Experience of San Francisco in the 1960s. From Black Psychedelia to Black Power, there was “Revolution in the Air” in the Sixties, and the artists and the activists were able to interpret and re-interpret their transforming world in ways never before known. We are all heirs to that work.

The first two Encounters will be held at California Historical Society, the third here at MoAD.

Encounter #1: AWAKENINGS Thursday, June 8 | 6:30-8:30pm | California Historical Society

Encounter #2: ASPIRATIONS OF 1967 Thursday, July 13 | 6:30-8:30pm | California Historical Society

Encounter #3: OUTCOMES addresses the outcomes of the period of radical counter-culture, and how African American artists and free-thinkers applied their craft, and exercised their ideals, imbibed with the liberating lessons of the ‘Summer of Love.” The third panel will also feature a funky band, and offer an exciting finish to the series. Panel includes Linda Tillery (formerly lead singer of The Loading Zone), William Calhoun (founder of the Black Panther Party band The Lumpen), and Faye Carol (educator and performer). Join us for a party with live music on hand to bring the series to a raucous conclusion!

All encounters moderated by Dr. Rickey Vincent, author of Party Music and lecturer at UC Berkeley & California College of the Arts
