[Virtual] 5th Annual Napa Valley Black History Month Event
February 5 @ 1:30 PM PST
Napa Valley’s 5th Black History Month celebration will take place virtually over Zoom on Saturday, Feb. 5, between 1:30 and 4 p.m. From 4:30 to 6 p.m., people who purchased $25 per person tickets for a soul food dinner may pick up meals and art activity kits at Crosswalk Community Church at 2590 First St. in Napa.
“The theme of Black History Month this year is Black health and wellness,” said James “JT” Thompson, founder of the Napa Valley’s first Black History Month celebration in 2017. “In addition, although intersectionality is not the theme, locally, we’re also exploring this concept.
“Intersectionality covers the many different ways there are to be Black and express Black identities. The artistic and educational components of our online programs will allow all community members to learn and respond to one another in healthy ways.”
The free online program is organized by People Before Policy, Teens Connect of Mentis, Crosswalk Church, and Rainbow Action Network (RAN), a program of First 5 Napa County. First 5 Napa County is a network of community leaders that work together to solve problems that face children and families in Napa County. RAN is a grassroots effort started by First 5 Napa and a group of LGBTQ people and allies to make the Napa Valley a welcoming place for LGBTQ families and children. – Courtesy Napa Valley Register
