April is a month to celebrate innovation in music and industry with ASPIRE SAN FRANCISCO books. The African-American Freedom Trail, seen on KPIX-5 and KBHK-44 in the Bay Area the past two weeks, is the product of our thorough books such as Come to the Water: Sharing the Rich Black Experience in San Francisco and Cakewalk: an historical novel about the unsung creators of jazz music, which is a great selection for Jazz Appreciation Month.
Silicon Ceiling 13: Equal Opportunity & High Technology continues the series that has been the bible for African-Americans in technology since 1998, cited in Congressional hearings,floor speeches and by Presidential candidates.
During the Black Health and Wellness Expo, we cited its statistics on the dearth of African-American employment in Silicon Valley and called for a goal of hiring 10,000 African-American tech workers in San Francisco in the next two years. San Francisco is 44th among American counties for black computer employment and Santa Clara County is 40th. Get the full story in Silicon Ceiling 13.
