Re: African-Americans in CA timeline
In Response To: African-Americans in CA timeline ()
A review of the timeline indicates
"1785 Blacks and mulattos made up at least 19.3 % of the population of Santa Barbara."
Denise one year for Fiesta in Santa Barbara, AfriAmerican Community Services (a group founded by Herman P. Nelson) did a float portraying the early Black Settlers in Snta Brbra.
Will try and upload photos from that event.
Sad to say but the present percentage of African Americans in the County population is under 3%. They include a number of "Entertainer Types". Lena Horne has maintained a residence there for years. What we now call "Hollywood" got its start in Santa Barbara
Thanx for the TimeLine!
