Take a Trip With Me: California Black History

My goal every year is to show some of our very rich history in California and the West.

This year, we will discover that the Buffalo Soldiers were the first to work the national parks.

We will learn the identity of that lady with the spear in the California state seal.

We will go through the actual book “The Negro Trailblazers Of California”, which tells about our history from the discovery of California.

A personal hero of mine is Biddy Mason who will serve as an example of the incredible women of California History.
