Funded by a grant from the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, The Museum chose to focus its reintroduction event on celebrating Asian-American Pacific-Islander Heritage month by engaging the San Fernando Valley Asian/Pacific Islander businesses and neighbors who have become part of the fabric of the Valley.

Jackie Langa, Vice President of The Museum, explains: “It is The Museum’s role to give a central voice to the distinctive histories of all populations in the SFV whose cultures, races, religions and ideas contributed to the Valley’s character, growth and development.”

This festive and family friendly event will celebrate many diverse Asian cultures through their art, music, dance, food and more at The Museum’s new location on the grounds of the beautiful Rancho Cordillera del Norte in Northridge. Festival highlights will include vendors’ booths, food trucks, demonstrations, onstage entertainment, children’s art workshops and the opportunity to visit the Museum and its exhibits. Visitors will be offered an immersive experience.

Later in the evening the Museum will also present an indoor theater screening and community discussion of Aimee Long’s film “A Shot Through The Wall.” The community’s discussion will be directed by a panel to discuss the film’s relevance to the diversely-ethnic SFV Pan-Asian/Pacific communities. Reservations for the film will be required.

Ms. Langa further explains: “We are trying to direct the conversation to celebrate SFV Asian-American/Pacific Islander residents in their specific neighborhoods for their day-to-day strengths and importance to the growth of the Valley while also examining their challenges as an ethnic community.”

2022 Black History Month, February 26th -The Museum SFV Speaker Series Crystal Jackson -African Americans in the SFV

To celebrate 2022 Black History Month, The Museum of the San Fernando Valley’s Speaker Series in conjunction with the Pacoima Historical Society is proud to present:

African Americans in the San Fernando Valley

As early as the 1920s, African Americans began coming to the San Fernando Valley. Although there were only a few, the 30s saw the numbers rise. By the 1950s, the Joe Louis Homes were built that attracted thousands from Los Angeles and the south to migrate to the Valley. Redlining and racial covenants prevented Blacks from living in most Valley areas. Still, this community built a rarely told oasis whose story we will share.
 
From the early beginnings in North Hollywood to Pacoima, the history is intriguing. Pacoima produced Heisman Trophy winners, Grammy award winners, and first Black Congresswoman from San Fernando High. This history is worth learning.  Crystal Jackson will make this presentation.

WHAT:  The Museum SFV History of Speaker Series

WHEN:  Saturday, February 26, 2022

TIME:   12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

COST:  $10/person   

(Proceeds to support both The MuseumSFV and Pacoima Historical Society)

RSVP HERE

Note: Zoom link will be sent to attendees within 24 hours of presentation.

 

Crystal Jackson, board member of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley and 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”, and author of "The Entrance: Pacoima's Story". Learn about the Pacoima you never knew and its 1500 year history will present.

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.

NOTE:  *** Attendees will be sent the Zoom link within 24 hours of presentation.

Please spread the word for this special presentation and event.
