African-American Museum to celebrate official Black History Month Awards Banquet 10-year anniversary
FRESNO, CA— 2019 Black History Month Celebration Banquet Saturday, February 2, 2019Celebrating its official 10-year anniversary, the African-American Historical & Cultural Museum of the San Joaquin Valley (AAHCMSJV) is hosting its annual, to honor the unsung African-American champions from throughout the San Joaquin Valley. Key event sponsors include: State Center Community College District, Chuckchansi Gold Resort & Casino, The Fresno Bee and the Fresno County Office of Education.
Other assisting sponsors include: Family Options, Tioga-Sequoia Brewery, CMAC, and ONME News.
In 2008, the vision among the AAHCMSJV Board of Directors started as a celebration of community leaders, to display to the masses the good works being done by people with extraordinary talent, vision, and leadership to uplift the community as a whole to greater heights. A plaque on the wall to present these greats eternally to the community and to patrons of the African-American Museum became the tradition. It wasn’t until 2009 the official structure of the event began to gel, with members from the community giving suggestions throughout the years to enhance the configuration, as well as implementing the original name, “Black History Month Celebration Banquet.”
