History

The history of black hair and B.O.B.S.A.

The history of black hair and B.O.B.S.A.

Black beauty supply stores started in black beauty and barber shops that were located in black communities across America in the early 20th century. Affluent blacks traveled to those community beauty salons and barber shops to have their hair done and bought products that were specifically made for their hair type by black hair care innovators.

Making Black America

Making Black America

Struggle and resistance are hallmarks of the African American experience, but they are not the only story. Beyond the reach of the “White gaze,” Black people worked and played, laughed and loved, hoped and dreamed, started families, built schools and businesses, formed communities, and created vast social networks that, borrowing from the motto of the National Association of Colored Women’s Clubs, lifted as they climbed. In this new four-hour documentary series, Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. takes us “behind the Veil” of racial segregation in Jim Crow America to tell their story.

Bill Russell 1934 – 2022

Bill Russell 1934 – 2022

Bill Russell, who spent many of his formative years in the Bay Area, was a true giant in the game of basketball, and more importantly, in the game of life. His championship resume, which included multiple State titles at McClymonds High School in Oakland, two NCAA championships at the University of San Francisco and a record 11 NBA titles with the Boston Celtics, might never be duplicated and solidifies his position as one of sports’ ultimate winners. But, while the accolades on the court were immense, it was his overall impact as a pioneer on multiple levels that will leave the greatest legacy from his iconic life and career.
