Inspired by San Francisco’s early African American settlers, this site-specific performance features eight prominent African Americans who lived and worked near San Francisco’s Market Street during the mid-nineteenth century and evokes their participation in the mass exodus of African Americans from California in 1858.
A project of Zaccho Dance Theatre and The San Francisco Arts Commission's Art on Market Street
