A conversation about place names in Alameda with Dennis Evanosky and Rasheed Shabazz.
In 2019, the Alameda Board of Education renamed Henry H. Haight elementary school after it was learned that its namesake promoted racist and xenophobic politics. On December 5, 1867, Haight was inaugurated Governor of California. Join the Alameda Museum to learn more about that renaming process and others, as well as place names across the island.
Speakers: Dennis Evanosky, former Museum President and Editor of the Alameda Post, and Rasheed Shabazz, co-facilitator of the Rename Haight and Rename Jackson Park groups.
This virtual event will take place Monday, December 5, 2022, 6:30-8:00pm via Zoom.
