From Sea to Shinning Sea, 2020 Alta California Juneteenth Fandango opens up a positive new way forward.
2020 Alta California Juneteenth, Dia De Los Negroes opens a principled Dialogue that may find fertile ground as we help rewrite authentic early California History for the world to see.

1442 may be the best documented date to begin quantification and qualification of the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade, time will tell.

In the California State Capitol Rotunda a 1490 celebration of Queen Isabela and Christopher Columbus on bended knee, with an inscribed message of the financial consideration of state sponsored terrorism against Negroes that continues to impact California today.

In 1537, the first documentation of enslaved Pan Africans in California seems a more appropriate study than a much later 1619 first ship of British pirates landed at King James Colony on the James River in Virginia.

On the way to 1865 Juneteenth, our agreed date to celebrate freedom, soon come cognition of why the celebration essential today.

Her Excellency Ambassador Dr. Arikana Chimombori Quao all ready to put it in global context again for those unable to attend last year.

Our 2020 Alta California Fandango - Dia De Los Negros is ready for prime time... from the Cultural Capitol in Sankofa Park, Los Angeles to the Political Capitol in Sacramento.

Our California Capitol City of the 5th largest economy remains not ready for Principled Dialogue to include authentic California Pan African Heritage, social distancing began in 1849 California Constitutional Convention and leading senior staff opposition remains fierce.

Many remain traumatized by the word "Negro" and soon come a better way forward as we celebrate Dia De Los Negros and share authentic California History.

Local institutions of higher learning have expressed interest in helping frame principled dialogue toward a positive new way forward that may lead the way to opening up the hidden archives and material resources to share.

When we re-open Pandora's box, explaining why a Dread Loc sista with big lips and almond eyes is on California State Capitol West Steps, State Seal, a 1535 legacy of Queen Califia hidden in plain view in the Historic California Room will come alive.
