California African-American Freedom Trail tour


The first diplomat who opened the Pacific to the United States was a Black millionaire sailor.    If that doesn’t get you out to the waterfront on Friday, we’ve got 1,400 more pages of incredible feats in Our Roots Run Deep: the Black Experience in California, Vols. 1-4.  The author, John William Templeton, created the 6,000 site California African-American Freedom Trail through all 58 counties.



Join us Nov. 17 at 11 a.m. from the trailhead of the California African-American Freeedom Trail for a 90-minute exploration of Black exploration of the Pacific.

J0hn William Templeton, the Black Encyclopedia, leads the fascinating experience during the APEC conference for resident and visitors.
