The Old City Cemetery Committee presents a tour that celebrates the contributions of historic African Americans in Sacramento.

The cemetery tour is set to begin at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday. It’s the first time the event has been held in the evening. Celebrate the contributions of Sacramento’s African American community as they struggled to gain a foothold in a dynamic and often hostile environment, and meet barbers, doctors, caterers, soldiers, singers, pastors, and others who settled the frontier.

Tickets are $10 and are only available online at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4256799. Ticket sales are limited to the first 50 sold. The Sacramento Historic City Cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway. The tour convenes at the 10th Street gate. There is free street parking on surrounding streets. For more information, call (916) 448-0811.

The mission of the OCCC is to join hands with the community to restore, beautify, preserve, and protect the Historic City Cemetery, while maintaining access by descendants of the deceased, and to provide educational services to all visitors to the Historic City Cemetery of Sacramento.
