A Night at the Zanzibar: SCHS 2012 Awards Dinner
TICKET SALES HAVE ENDED FOR THIS EVENT
Sacramento County Historical Society's 2012 awards dinner and fundraiser is themed "A Night at the Zanzibar," featuring dinner by the Dante Club, a talk by historians Keith Burns and Clarence Caesar about the Zanzibar Club, one of Sacramento's long-lost West End jazz nightclubs, and a live performance by the Harley White Orchestra performing big-band jazz. SCHS will also present its annual awards for publication, education and historic preservation.
The Zanzibar was one of many Sacramento jazz clubs located in the old West End, now known as Capitol Mall, before the era of redevelopment. Open from 1942 to 1949, the Zanzibar attracted legendary jazz musicians to Sacramento. Historian Keith Burns will display his collection of photos and artifacts from the Zanzibar, and historian Clarence Caesar will explain the role clubs like the Zanzibar played in Sacramento's African American community.
