On Sunday, September 16, the City of Sacramento held the inaugural “916 Day” at McClatchy Park. This is an event planned to be held annually, every 16th of September to bring together Sacramento citizens for a celebration of the city.
The neighborhood of Oak Park is known as a low-income area. Now, it is known as a place where up and coming events are happening and the locals are getting pushed out.

The African Market Place gives people of color a chance to grow their businesses and for the black community of Sacramento a place to thrive.
The next African Market Place will take place on Saturday, September 15th. A workshop will be held for black women to discuss the impacts of the absence of fathers. Visit the African Market’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/SacramentoAMP for more information!
