Black History Month will be celebrated Saturday at Colonel Allensworth State Historic Park in Tulare County.
The celebration will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to honor the only town in California that was founded, financed and governed by African Americans.
The event will focus on the contributions that African Americans made to education, and that the town represented the freedom of the discriminatory laws at the turn of the 20th century.
There will be guest speakers, storytellers, arts and crafts vendors and food.
The park entrance fee is $8 per passenger vehicle, $50 for a bus with 24 passengers or less and $100 for a bus with 25 passengers or more.
For more information or directions to the park, contact Jerelyn Oliveira at (661) 849-3433 or Jerelyn.Oliveira@parks.ca.gov.
