    Description:

    Early Black Pioneers of Alameda
    Rasheed Shabazz grew up on the West End of Alameda. He received his Bachelors in African American Studies and Political Science, and minored in City and Regional Planning, at UC Berkeley. Black history of Alameda is largely unknown and overlooked. Of the scant attention Black Alamedans have received, most focuses on the post- World War II population. This presentation examines the lives of early Black pioneers of Alameda, focusing on housing, community building, and the origins of racialized residential segregation. Sponsor: Evelyn Kennedy, Alain Pinel Realtors, and Alameda Museum Board Member.
