This is the first in a series of exhibits to explore the extensive history of African-Americans in Berkeley, beginning with the first early families, through the explosion in population during the wartime industry boom before World War II, and into the civil rights era and beyond. It will focus on housing issues, including racial covenants, redlining, fair housing legislation and the current displacement crisis, religious, social and business organizations, arts, entertainment, education, politics, and sports, and notable Black contributions to the city’s civic life. This first exhibit will focus on four African-American families: the Reids, the Howards, the Rumfords, and the Griffins.
