The FAMU SoCal Alumni Chapter is proud to share the upcoming events of members Bernard and Shirley Kinsey taking place in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
As many of you know, the Kinsey’s one-of-a-kind African American art collection is currently on display at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC. For those unable to travel east, a smaller collection of artifacts will be on display in San Francisco beginning Friday, January 14th.
“African American History: From The Collection of Bernard and Shirley Kinsey” will open at the San Francisco African American Historical and Cultural Society in San Francisco, California. The Kinsey’s will host an opening night reception on Friday, January 14th from 6-8 pm, as well as a conversation and book signing on Saturday, January 15th from 1-3 pm. The exhibit contains selections from the full Kinsey Collection, as well as pieces that have never been publicly displayed such as the Dred Scott Decision of 1857. For more information, please visit www.sfaahcs.org.
Also, the Kinsey’s will participate in the kickoff celebration for Black History Month held at San Francisco’s City Hall on Friday, February 4th where they will deliver the keynote address.
On Saturday, February 5th the Kinsey’s will host the second installment of “What You Didn’t Learn in High School History” as part of the Ebony Repertory Theatre’s “A Celebration of Black History” at the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center. Last year’s event was a sell out! Please visit www.ebonyrep.org to reserve your tickets.
