The Bay Area’s online destination for African American arts, culture and lifestyle

MichaelD From the arts to lifestyle to culture to entertainment, the Bay Area REGISTRY is a cultural catalyst for the African American community—a resource that showcases and drives positive dialogue about and support for Black arts, events, culture and lifestyle. The REGISTRY also captures African American life as it exists within and contributes to the broader mainstream global experience. With its mix of top pick events, curated content and photography, the REGISTRY shines a spotlight on Bay Area lifestyle from an African American perspective and brings it to center stage.

Here you’ll find the experiences of African Americans captured throughout the full spectrum of Bay Area life…eyes wide open, revealing a diverse lifestyle. We document these experiences, perhaps redefining what “Black” in the Bay Area is…or is not.

As a constant, the REGISTRY is a media channel that speaks first to the modern and sophisticated Bay Area African American consumer who demands the best in the arts, culture and life. It also speaks to a diverse audience of Bay Area residents and visitors that see, feel and understand African American culture to be a significant contributor to American culture.
