Explore S.F.’s black heritage in a new tour

If you didn’t know that the first building rebuilt after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake was a black-owned jazz club or where novelist Ernest Gaines penned such works as the Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman, then you’ll be interested in the new San Francisco Black Heritage Tour beginning daily operation Nov. 2, 2009.
Created by historian John William Templeton, author of Our Roots Run Deep: the Black Experience in California, Vols. 1-4 and the section on African-Americans in the West in the Oxford Encyclopedia of African-American History, the three distinct tours cover time periods stretching back to the Mexican era.
