New policies needed to reverse outmigration


SAN FRANCISCO — The expert on San Francisco African-American history will show how misguided, and often malicious city policies are contributing to the most severe outmigration of any large metropolitan city in the country.

John William Templeton, author of Come to the Water: Sharing the Rich Black Experience in San Francisco, describes on Monday, Sept. 9 how the city’s black population, 12 percent of the total in 1960, can rebound and flourish to the Black American Congress of San Francisco at 2 Sadowa St at 7 p.m.

“Through deliberate bureaucratic manuevers, a lack of transparency and sometimes policy fraud, our citizens do not receive the services they are entitled to,” says the author of Year of Jubilee: State of Black Business, 10th edition. “However, there is a history of community-based leadership which has been at the heart of the progress of black San Franciscans.”
