Safe Black Space 6 Year Anniversary Celebration

SAFE BLACK SPACE, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, celebrates six years of continuous service to the greater Sacramento community and beyond! Founding member and Executive Director Dr. Kristee Haggins explained that “SAFE BLACK SPACE started in response to a community tragedy – the killing of Stephon Clark by Sacramento PD in April 2018. We had no idea it would evolve in the way that it has. We are honored and grateful to still be of service six years later.”

The free in-person anniversary celebration for SAFE BLACK SPACE where all community members are invited to come enjoy food, fun and connecting, will take place on Saturday, April 27th from 2:00pm-5:00pm PT, at Unity of Sacramento, 9249 Folsom Blvd., Sacramento, CA 95826. It would not be a SAFE BLACK SPACE event without music, African drumming and dancing, and creative expressions. Come one. Come all!

Since its inception six years ago, SAFE BLACK SPACE has served thousands of folks through its monthly community healing circles, book study groups, drum circles, participation in community outreach, and its annual Kwanzaa Family Kutoa (Giving) Event among other activities. SAFE BLACK SPACE centers African psychology and cultural principles of wellness as essential practices of community health and healing. Our services are specifically designed by and for Black people, to help counteract the negative impacts of anti-Blackness, racism, and oppression. SAFE BLACK SPACE recognizes and meets the needs of Black people who have experienced current, as well as historical, intergenerational, and collective racial stress and trauma. Our premiere service is our SAFE BLACK SPACE Community Healing Circles which are safe havens where Black community members come together to benefit from collective healing, empowering each individual and the community at large.

Everyone is invited to join us on April 27th to get a sense of what happens in our healing circles and experience the power of SBS.
