    In honor of 2020 Black History Month, The Museum of the San Fernando Valley’s Speaker Series with the Pacoima Historical Society is proud to present:
 “The Entrance: Pacoima's Story”
Crystal Jackson, Founder and President of the Pacoima Historical Society, and filmmaker of the 2018 Pan African Film Festival Best Feature Documentary nominee “Pacoima Stories: Land of Dreams”, returns to The Museum SFV to review and discuss her new book "The Entrance: Pacoima's Story". Learn about the Pacoima you never knew and its 1,500 year history.

Author and historian, Crystal Jackson, delivers an authentic and compelling account of one town’s epic journey through American history. Since our nation’s birth, Pacoima has been a microcosm of America’s social development and evolution. From the Mission era and genocide of the area’s natives, into becoming among the country’s first suburban minority communities, Pacoima's diverse cultural history is unlike any other. This amazing new book features hundreds of historic photos from Pacoima's history and more than 600 pages of information about the town.

Crystal was born in Pacoima in the ‘60’s. Her family had moved to the San Fernando Valley in the 1930’s, first North Hollywood, then Pacoima. Crystal graduated Granada Hills High School but went to San Fernando High her last semester to stay close to her Pacoima friends. She majored in Journalism at Cal State Northridge, but it wasn’t until Crystal moved to the Bay area to begin her Pacoima film that she realized the richness of her town’s history.
After the discussion, Crystal will personally sign the books of all in attendance.   

The cost of each book is $32.00 plus 9.5% sales tax.  A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Museum of the San Fernando Valley.

Elevator access to 2nd floor.
Light refreshments served.
