sf|noir is a non-profit presenting arts organization that was founded in 2001 out of a passion for artistic expression and a desire to help bring about a greater awareness of the contributions of African Americans and the African Diaspora to art and culture. The organization was also formed to fill a void that has been continually expanding in San Francisco, whereby the visibility of African American “creatives” and the culture and communities they represent has been shrinking. sf|noir collaborates throughout the year with other organizations and produces timely and innovative programming to keep its audiences at the cutting edge.
