SFCC Celebrates Black History Month

On Thursday, February 15th, the San Francisco Conservation Corps hosted a Black History Celebration event at our headquarters for Corpsmembers and staff. Our young adults spent a week prior researching prominent black figures in history, and presented to the community at this event. They learned about Jean-Michael Basquiat, George Washington Carver, Michael Jackson, Martin Luther King, Jr., Barack Obama, and Henrietta Lacks, among others. This event also included a delicious homemade soul-food meal from our dedicated staff, Kisha!
