Zoom video/conference call for all Members and Guests.

Let's learn some history about this wonderful community we call home.  FF of Sacramento is pleased to introduce a guest speaker for our meeting.  Maryellen Burns will be presenting on The Golden Age of Sacramento’s Jazz Clubs.  Sacramento’s West end was filled with the sounds of jazz.  These clubs became so popular they crossed racial barriers and made Sacramento a stop on the touring circuit for the greatest jazz musicians of the 20th century.  Cultural historian Maryellen Burns will share the stories of Cherry de St. Maurice, the Queen of Sacramento’s Tenderloin whose bordello first brought Jazz to town to the ragtime era of Ancil Hoffman’s saloons, Japantown’s international jazz star Betty Inada– and the incredible rise and fall of black-owned clubs like the Zanzibar, Clayton, and Momo Clubs in the 40’s and 50’s.

Maryellen Burns is a regularly featured instruction with Renaissance at CSU Sacramento and a gifted storyteller.
