Event Description:

Sacramento’s Black History Month Free Family Festival returns to Sacramento with live performances, hands-on activities, and our community’s one-and-only Black and Beautiful Community Marketplace. This year’s festival will feature the one-woman exhibition “Faith Ringgold: An American Artist,” and the concurrent exhibition of works by African American artists, “Hopes Springing High: Gifts of African American Art”. The celebration will feature explosive beats by Grant High School’s renowned drumline, drama by Celebration Arts, and a special "Baby, that’s Jazz" presentation exploring African American musical roots and legacy. If that’s not enough, inspired by the history-making Black Panther film, the Festival will explore AfroFuturism in art and music! Get ready to sing-along, call, respond, and most of all celebrate the amazing contributions of many African Americans. This event, as well as general admission to the Museum, are free for everyone on February 18, 2018. Museum hours: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. For more information visit crockerart.org or call 916) 808-7000.
