Sojourner Truth Museum Tour By Lisa Howard

African American History Month is upon us with the start of February and AAUW offers some opportunities for branch members to learn on February 3rd – Field trip to Black Owned Businesses in Oak Park and The Sojourner Truth Museum Tour.

Bring a friend and make it a date.  Join one half of the day or join both.

  • Member Field Trip of Black Owned Businesses
  • Start your day at 10:30 with a snack from Faria Bakery, 3417 Broadway.
  • Enjoy a 2-minute walk to Underground Books, 2814 35th St – opens at 11 a.m. 
  • Walk another couple of minutes to join Jean Bonar at Fixins, 3428 3rd Ave. Let Jean know if you can join for lunch so she can reserve the table. Jean’s contact information can be found in the Membership Directory.
  • If you have already visited the Sojourner Museum  and are not interested in the market, consider walking over to the Brickhouse Gallery and Art Complex at 2837 36th St after lunch.
  • Sojourner Truth Museum and African Market
  • Members that joined the trip last year really enjoyed both the museum and the market which is stood up in the building on the first and third Saturday each month
  • If you are joining the 1:30 p.m. Sojourner Truth Museum Tour, plan to leave Fixins by 1:15 p.m. and drive to 2251 Florin Rd. #126, Sacramento and head down the right hallway to the museum. Take some time to shop with the African American Market merchants.
