THE EXODUS. THE MIGRATION. THE STAND
Thu, May 17 — Thu, Oct 11
Opening Reception: May 17, 2012 – October 11, 2012 6-8pm
This exhibition is about the Black San Franciscans of yesteryear, their departure, and the story of those who remain. According to the 2010 census, the African American population dropped to 3.9% which is devastating to a community that once thrived in various neighborhoods of San Francisco.
On the heels of the “Still Here” exhibition, at the Sirron Norris Studio Gallery, the Three Point Nine Art Collective (Nancy Cato, Rodney Ewing, Sirron Norris, William Rhodes, and Ron Moultrie Saunders) will use art to interpret what this decline in population means for a community and a city that prides itself on its cultural diversity.
