If you are interested in the history of the Fillmore Jazz District or jazz itself, you will want to participate in this volunteer-run project. One part is a photo exhibition, at the African American Art and Culture Complex through August 31. [For more information about the photo exhibit, see the Alamo Square section above.] The second part is an extensive interactive website that provides a platform for the Fillmore's musicians, nightclub owners and residents of the 1940s and 1950s to tell the neighborhood’s history in their own words, as well as featuring rarely seen photographs and memorabilia. Project organizers hope that community members will contribute to the website, keeping it alive, relevant, and growing. Please email project organizers at www.harlemofthewestsf.com if you have a story to tell, photographs to share, or can identify anyone in the photographs after you have visited the exhibit.
