AAMLO Public Tour
AAMLO Saturday Salons are on hiatus in August, and you can join AAMLO staff every Saturday in August at 4:00 p.m. for a guided 45-minute tour - an introduction to the African American Museum & Library at Oakland, including the permanent multi-media history exhibition, “Visions Towards Tomorrow: The African American Community in Oakland, 1890-1990,” and the mural, “Journey of Promise.” Tours focus on AAMLO's history, architecture, and collections with an emphasis on the historical accomplishments and cultural experiences of African Americans in California and the West. All tours include a visit to the reference library, archives department and collection highlights. Meet inside the lobby entrance to the African American Museum & Library at Oakland. Then, join us in September for more exciting programming during our Saturday Salons!
